Will Ferrell and Anne Heche Join Forces on New NBC Sitcom Deadline

A single-camera comedy in development at NBC has a high-profile team behind it, including Will Ferrell and Anne Heche. Deadline.com reports that Ferrell and Adam McCay's Gary Sanchez Productions is working with Heche on the female-focused sitcom "Bad Judge."

The project is based on an idea by Heche, who brought it to Gary Sanchez. The show will focus on a female judge in the criminal court system who has a hard-living lifestyle and is "sexually unapologetic," the story notes.

Heche and Jill Messick will executive produce with Ferrell and McKay. Heche is already in business with NBC with the midseason series “Save Me,” which Heche stars in and produces.

Gary Sanchez Productions has sold two other projects to NBC this season, the report notes: Leslye Headland’s “Assistance” and Lauryn Kahn’s “I Guess I Do.”
