Next Caller Please
‘You’re the Worst’ Creator Opens Up About Failure, Dating and How Jenji Kohan Brought Him Back to TV
The creator of NBC's Dane Cook comedy "Next Caller" talks with THR about his return to TV and the lessons he learned from opening up after the show's cancellation before its premiere.
With "Go On" the only "hit" of the freshman crop, new sitcom blocks are tanking and hyped first-year series are pulling anemic numbers -- and those are the shows that are still on the air.
The network picked up four dramas, including one from J.J. Abrams, and seven comedies with one hailing from "Glee's" Ryan Murphy.
The pickup marks the network's seventh comedy pickup and sixth single-camera effort.
