NBC Adds Comedy Pilot To Its Lineup
Looks like there’s going to be a whole lot of comedy on NBC. Since its pilot season right now in Los Angeles, you will be sure to hear of new announcements of new shows. NBC has just announced that they ordered a comedy pilot, headed up by executive producer Mike Sikowitz.
Sikowitz has a long line of credits. He executive produced Rules of Engagement, and Grounded For Life, as well as the ill-fated show The Class. Not only will he be an executive producer on the comedy for NBC, but he will also write the show too.
This comedy is from Sony Pictures Television and is said to be about a white family and a Latino family and how they get along when their respective children fall in love. Of course this results in an unplanned pregnancy, which will no doubt cause for some whacky blunders.
NBC is saying goodbye to a lot of their seasoned comedies this year like Parks and Recreation, The Office, 30 Rock, and possibly troubled series Community. With the exit of their glorious comedic shows comes in a whole slew of new comedy. In addition to this new pilot, NBC has ordered a Jason Katims series called About a Boy, Assistance, Donor Party, The Gates, Girlfriend in a Coma, Holding Patterns, Joe, and Joe and Jane. The last being a project from Greg Daniels, which is said to star Sean Hayes.
