Sarah Silverman Comedy Project Lands at NBC
After an intense bidding war and interest from multiple networks, Sarah Silverman’s comedy project has landed at NBC.
From Imagine TV and 20th Century Fox Television, NBC has committed to produce a pilot for the single-camera comedy project, which will star Silverman as a woman readjusting to single life following a decadelong live-in relationship.
Loosely based on Silverman’s life, the comedian will co-write the project with Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder, who co-wrote her Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program.
Executive producers on the project include Ron Howard, Silverman, Sterling, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.
