Dane Cook is in business with NBC.

Cook has signed an overall talent deal with the network and is developing a half-hour comedy targeted for the next television season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Details are scarce, but this would mark the comedian's first project on network television, aside from guest appearances.

Cook, known for his stand-up comedy, has appeared in several feature films over the course of the past several years, including Dan in Real Life, My Best Friend's Girl, Employee of the Month and Good Luck Chuck. 

He has recently appeared on CBS' Hawaii Five-0.

It's a busy time for NBC, which is developing a project with Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio; purchased a thriller from J.J. Abrams and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke; and picked up a Valley of the Dolls script by Lee Daniels, just to name a few.
