NBC orders Mulaney sitcom pilot

Multicam show based on comedian's stand-up act

In a nod to sitcoms of the past that were based on the stand-ups of their respective eras, NBC is ordering a multicam pilot based on the comedy and life of John Mulaney.

Show, from Universal Television, comes from exec producer Lorne Michaels, whose “30 Rock” is leaving the Peacock this year. Other exec producers are Mulaney, Andrew Singer, Dave Becky and David Miner.

Multicam sitcoms that were based on a comedian’s life and stand-up material include “Roseanne,” “Home Improvement,” “Ellen” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

The Chicago-born Mulaney has been a writer for “Saturday Night Live” and appeared on a few sketches as well. He also starred in his own stand-up special for Comedy Central.
