Yesterday was an important day at NBC, with several pilots getting a green light within hours of one another. Three single camera projects including a Spanish format romantic comedy, Someone Out There, an ensemble comedy currently untitled by Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer-producers Phil Augusta Jackson and co-creator Dan Goor, and a dating comedy called Crazy for You from Seth Meyers and Lorne Michaels.
The three shows are being produced at Universal Television where Hubbard, Goor and Broadway Video, Lorne Michaels’ multimedia entertainment studio, are under overall deals, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Earlier in the day, multi-camera comedy Jefferies and single-camera American Auto were picked up for straight-to-series pilots.
Someone Out There is created by Spanish actor Javier Veiga and is based on the format of Amazon Prime’s Pequenas Coincidencias. Producers from 30 Rock, Matt Hubbard, Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan will serve as writers and executive producers.
The show will be about two people who have been challenged to become their best selves in order to find love, and ultimately each other, according to Deadline.
The other comedy an untitled project by Jackson and Goor, will follow the lives of a group of friends and their dating lives. Both Jackson and Goor will serve as executive producers, with Jackson also serving as a writer on the show.
Meyers and Michaels’ comedy Crazy for You will be about a woman, Daisy, who experiences troubles reentering the dating scene. Saturday Night Live producer and Silicon Valley writer Rachele Lynn will executive produce and write for the show.
With NBC comedy hits Will & Grace and The Good Place coming to an end, the network is working to produce new shows totaling six new comedy pilots, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
