NBC Buys Comedy Script from ‘The Millers’ Scribe, Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco

NBC has bought a comedy script penned by “The Millers” scribe Austen Earl based loosely on the life of comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, Variety has learned.

The project, which is exec produced by Earl and “Millers” creator Greg Garcia, follows a newly married man who attempts to stay true to his blue-collar roots while adjusting to a world full of people he finds increasingly offensive. It’s produced by CBS Television Studios and Garcia’s Amigos De Garcia Productions shingle. Co-EPs are Maniscalco (pictured), Judy Brown-Marmel, Norman Aladjem and Alix Jaffe. It’s still unclear as to whether Maniscalco will star in the project.

Maniscalco, whose Showtime special “Aren’t You Embarrassed” airs November 14, is represented by UTA, LEG and attorney Gregg Gellman. Earl, whose credits also include NBC’s “Up All Night,” is repped by CAA. Garcia is also repped by CAA.
