One of the stars of NBC’s “Community” has been tapped by the network to develop a new show, TVGuide.com reports. Donald Glover, who plays former high school quarterback Troy Barnes on “Community,” is pairing with "30 Rock" co-executive producer Matt Hubbard on the new sitcom project, the story reports.
The comedy would be a starring vehicle for Glover, with NBC said to be close to a deal for a put pilot. The show would be based on Glover’s life.
The new project would be in second position to "Community," on which Glover is committed for the show’s fourth season, the piece adds.
Glover worked with Hubbard on "30 Rock" as a writer before moving into acting, the piece adds.
