NBC lands Jack Black's 'Experiment' pilot

Comedy project centers on man fixated on self-improvement

NBC has picked up a comedy pilot from actor-comedian Jack Black.

The network has made a pilot order-with-penalty deal for a new project based on A.J. Jacobs' nonfiction book "The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment."

The show is about a man fixated on self-improvement who takes on difficult experiments and lifestyles, all of which makes things tough on his family.

The husband-and-wife team of Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (" 'Til Death") will serve as writers.

Black's production company will produce along with Reveille and Sony TV.
