The series hails from “Parks and Rec” vet Matt Murray, who is writing the pilot. He’ll also serve as executive producer with Schur and David Miner of 3 Arts Entertainment. The trio worked on “Parks,” “The Good Place” and Schur’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” together.
The project landed at The Peacock with a put pilot commitment. Both Schur and Murray are under overall deals at Universal TV.
“Landlords” marks Schur’s first project put into development at NBC for the 2017-2018 television season. He’s one of the network’s most trusted creators with “Parks and Rec’s” immense success and now “The Good Place,” starring Ted Danson and Kristen Bell.
For NBC, “Landlords” is the second project this development cycle from the “Parks and Rec” team. Amy Poehler, who recently re-upped with Universal TV, is producing “The Baby,” a comedy starring “American Pie’s” Seann William Scott, which NBC nabbed with a pilot production commitment.
Murray and Schur are both repped by UTA.
