Peacock looking to put Grier in gear

Specifics to be decided

NBC is looking to develop a comedy vehicle with “In Living Color” alum David Alan Grier, who has inked a holding deal with the Peacock.

There are no specifics yet on a concept for the show, targeted for the 2000-01 season. Grier most recently has been seen in NBC’s successful mini “The ’60s” and the Peter Bogdanovich-helmed ABC telepic “A Saintly Switch.”

Grier was a charter member of the “In Living Color” sketch comedy troupe on Fox in the early 1990s. In 1995 he starred in the short-lived Fox sitcom “The Preston Episodes,” and last year he was a regular on the Fox comedy “Damon.”

Grier’s recent pic credits include 1997’s “McHale’s Navy” and 1995’s “Jumanji.” He’s repped by United Talent Agency.
