NBC has handed a put-pilot commitment to an untitled comedy from Kim Rosenstock and Universal Television.

Written by Rosenstock, the untitled comedy project tells the story of a newly single mother who is forced to rely on the last people she wants help from—her family. Rosenstock is serving as executive producer alongside Amy Poehler and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Dave Becky. Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment are also producing with Universal TV. Kim Lessing is serving as producer.

Rosenstock is a playwright and television writer whose credits include the Fox Broadcasting Company single-camera comedy series “New Girl.” In June, Variety reported that Rosenstock was writing the book for a new stage-musical adaptation of “Working Girl,” the hit 1988 screen comedy that starred Melanie Griffith. Fox Stage Productions and Robyn Goodman’s Aged in Wood Productions are producing the show, with Cyndi Lauper writing songs. Rosenstock is represented by WME.

Last month, Netflix gave an eight-episode series ordser to another project from Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment, an untitled comedy that follows a young woman named Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City. The eight-episode series is set to premiere on Netflix in more than 190 countries around the world. Lyonne, Poehler, and Leslye Headland co-created the series.
