Big Three bidding for 20th TV comedy

ABC, CBS, NBC vying for Gormican, Kasdan laffer

The broadcast nets’ appetite for hot comedy prospects shows no sign of slowing, even after a busy few weeks of developing shopping.

ABC, CBS and NBC are in the midst of spirited bidding for “On the Verge of Greatness,” an ensemble comedy from scribe Tom Gormican and 20th Century Fox TV and 3 Arts TV.

Jake Kasdan is also attached to the project as an exec producer and director. Howard Klein and Oly Obst of 3 Arts will exec produce with Gormican.

Project is described as a single-camera ensembler revolving around a group of twentysomething friends.

Project was pitched Tuesday to the Big Four nets. Fox took a pass but the other three nets are ready to pounce, setting the stage for the project to land a big commitment.

Gormican is also fielding a handful of feature scripts and is a co-producer on Relativity’s upcoming Farrelly brothers feature set to bow in April.

Gormican is repped by WME and 3 Arts.
