Jimmy Fallon sells three scripts to NBC

Late-night host started Holiday Road in January

Jimmy Fallon is angling to extend his NBC footprint from latenight to primetime.

Holiday Road, the shingle Fallon quietly launched in January to produce scripted and unscripted series, has sold three comedy scripts to the Peacock. It’s the first sales for the production company, which is set up at Universal Television.

The “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” host and one of the show’s writers, Amy Ozols, will exec produce the series, all of which are being penned by scribes who either work on the latenight series or on “Saturday Night Live,” Fallon’s previous NBC home.

“Fallon” writer Jeremy Bronson is teaming with them on “Fat Rob,” about a former rap star who is balancing fame and the need to be a good father.

“The Office” writer Charlie Grandy, who worked with Fallon when he was on “SNL,” is behind “DILFs,” in which thirtysomething dads struggle with not being grown up enough to parent.

“Fallon” writer Gerard Bradford is behind “Rick,” about a lovable doofus who is a stepdad to a guy the same age as him.

NBC had a similar arrangement with Conan O’Brien when he was still part of the network’s latenight lineup. O’Brien’s shingle, Conaco, produced several series that made it to NBC’s air, including “Andy Barker, P.I.”

When O’Brien moved to TBS last year, Conaco signed an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television.
