NBC Orders Lesbian-Themed Sitcom Pilot from Ellen Degeneres

NBC has ordered a lesbian-themed comedy pilot One Big Happy, which will be produced by Ellen Degeneres and openly gay 2 Broke Girls writer Liz Feldman (who worked with Degeneres on The Ellen Show from 2003-2007). The multi-camera sitcom will focus on a lesbian main character who becomes pregnant just as her best friend, a straight male, gets married.

Alongside Sean Saves the World, this is the second gay-themed sitcom that will air on NBC. Two of the network’s recently canceled sitcoms, Smash and Go On, also featured gay characters. One Big Happy will be produced by A Very Good Production in association with Warner Bros. TV.

In other sitcom news, NBC also ordered a pilot for the single-cam Jason Bateman-produced comedy Two to Go.
