‘Temps’ job for party crowd

NBC wins bidding war for new sitcom

The team behind “Party Down” has reason to hire caterers: Its next project just scored a put pilot order from NBC.

Rob Thomas, Jon Enbom and Dan Etheridge are the creators behind “Temps,” a single-camera laffer that has landed at the Peacock after an aggressive bidding war. Thomas and Enbom will write the script.

Warner Bros. TV is behind the single-camera comedy. Thomas, Enbom and Etheridge will exec produce along with Jennifer Gwartz and Danielle Stokdyk.

The quintet all spent two seasons on “Party Down,” the Starz comedy that scored critical acclaim but low ratings. Starz recently canceled the show after ratings failed to pick up.

Where “Party Down” found humor in a group of Angelenos working for a catering company while waiting for something better to come along, “Temps” will focus on a group of recent college grads who are forced to take a variety of oddball temp jobs to make ends meet.

Gwartz, Stokdyk, Enbom and Etheridge worked alongside Thomas on his highly regarded UPN series “Veronica Mars.” Stokdyk, Gwartz and Etheridge worked with Thomas on ABC’s recent rework of “Cupid,” while Enbom’s credits include “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”

UTA reps Thomas, Etheridge, Stokdyk and Gwartz, while Enbom is repped by WME.
