This may sound like old news to some of you: Didn’t Sarah Silverman get an NBC pilot back in August? That was a pilot “commitment,” but now the project is firmly moving forward with a pilot order.
The untitled sitcom has Silverman starring as a version of herself, a woman who’s newly single after a long relationship. This is so very on-brand for NBC’s Thursday block that it’s tough to see the project being derailed from getting a full-fledged series order (and it’s a potential companion for another female comedian-fronted NBC title, Whitney, in the unlikely event it survives long enough for Silverman’s show to hit the air). Would you watch a sitcom starring Silverman?
