Diane English has joined the NBC comedy project for the Ellen stars, Sophia Grace and Rosie.
Deadline has learned that with English on board, NBC has now upped the script order to a pilot production commitment. The project will be produced by Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. TV, both of whom actively pursued English.
This marks the first series for English since Murphy Brown ended in 1998. English garnered two best series Emmy’s for Murphy Brown and a writing Emmy for the pilot.
