NBC Purchases Pilot from John Mulaney

NBC announced today that the network has purchased a sitcom pilot from John Mulaney, the comedian and former SNL writer known for creating Weekend Update’s Stefon with cast member Bill Hader.

The show, an ensemble comedy to be produced by SNL creator and 30 Rock executive producer Lorne Michaels, will star and be written by Mulaney.

TV Line reports that the sitcom will “follow a group of young people and their hijinks,” but we have faith that Mulaney can be more original than that.

Mulaney’s comedy special New in Town was one of our favorites of last year. You can check out a clip from New in Town below.
