Turner, Klein land fourth project at NBC

Untitled hour-long focuses on chef and his family

Production partners Sheldon Turner and Jennifer Klein have landed their fourth project this development season, a drama at NBC.

Untitled hourlong at the Peacock comes from scribe Julie Golden (“Caesars 24/7”) and centers on the world of a chef and his dysfunctional family.

Call it “Brothers and Sisters” meets the Food Network. Untitled hour will revolve around a San Francisco chef who’s on the cusp of joining the ranks of celebrity chefs — but whose life is upended when his ex-wife dies and his daughters move in.

Turner and Klein will exec produce; Warner Bros. TV is attached.

Turner and Klein are coming off a busy selling season, having lined up a project at ABC from Turner and Shaun Cassidy.

The duo are also exec producing the script “The True Adventures of a Terrible Dater,” penned by Susan Brightbill, at CBS. (Warner Bros. TV is also behind that one.)

And at FX, Turner is writing the drama “Broken” through Fox21. Turner and Klein are EPs.
