According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox has recently picked up Mulaney — a comedy series that SNL alum John Mulaney not only created and wrote but will also star in as himself. The loosely autobiographical show will follow Mulaney’s day-to-day escapades as he aspires to become a comedian while dealing with his boss, roommates and neighbors.
The series was originally developed for NBC, where the pilot was developed last year. It is not yet clear which of the cast members who starred in the pilot will stay on board now that the show has moved to Fox, the Hollywood Reporter notes.
The original cast for the comedy — which takes place in New York City — included SNL’s Nasim Pedrad as well as Elliott Gould, Seaton Smith and Griffin Newman.
Mulaney will also executive produce for the show alongside Lorne Michaels and 3 Arts, Dave Becky (Louie) and Andrew Singer (Portlandia).
