NBC Orders Comedy From 'Happy Endings' Creator THR
NBC is moving forward with a single-camera comedy project from the creator of "Happy Endings." The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the network gave a pilot order to "Marry Me," from David Caspe.
The comedy is about a longtime couple who decide to tie the knot, but realize it’s tougher than it seems, the story says. The project is from Sony Pictures Television, where Caspe has an overall deal.
Caspe’s “Happy Endings,” a critical favorite, was canceled about six months ago by ABC. He has a few other projects in the works, including “Ball Street” at Showtime and “Roommates” at CBS.
This marks NBC’s second comedy pilot order, following “Bad Judge,” which stars Kate Walsh.
