Peacock wins bidding war for comedy from 'Glee' EP

NBC has won a bidding war for a new comedy from “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy via 20th Century Fox Television.

Peacock is making a put-pilot commitment on the untitled project; logline is being kept under wraps.

Murphy will executive produce and write with “Glee” co-executive producer Allison Adler along with “Glee” executive producer Dante Di Loreto. Project garnered the highest penalty of any NBC pilot in development this season, according to 20th TV.

Murphy is on a hot streak as of late, successfully launching “American Horror Story” on FX.
