NBC Buys New Sitcom From Jason Bateman's Production Company
Jason Bateman has had an amazing career in the world of sitcoms. With plenty of TV appearances under his belt, most notably Arrested Development, Bateman is stepping behind the camera as executive producer with his latest sitcom Then Came Elvis, which was just bought by NBC, according to Deadline.
Then Came Elvis takes place in the ‘80s and revolves around a family coping with the divorce. It will feature a voice-over from the son as an adult reflecting on his childhood, much like how the Wonder Years did. The show is expected to be shot with a single-camera.
This will be first TV project for Bateman’s production company, Aggregate Films. The president of Aggregate Films, Jim Garavente, and Bateman enlisted the help of the executive producer of Up All Night DJ Nash to help them with new sitcom. According to Deadline the show is a loosely based on Nash’s life.
NBC has not said when the new sitcom will air.
