NBC has a new comedy project in the works with a sports focus. The project is an adaptation of the Israeli soccer comedy “Imported,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The network is teaming with Keshet Studios on the adaptation, the report notes.
“The comedy, which has received a script commitment from the network, is a fish out of water story about an American family who moves to London when one of their sons is drafted by a top English soccer club,” THR reports. “Robert Borden (‘The Late Show with David Letterman,’ ‘George Lopez,’ ‘Outsourced’) will pen the script and exec produce the Universal Television and Keshet comedy.”
NBC previously worked with Keshet on the summer drama “Allegiance,” the report notes.
