A comedy pilot from actor and comedian Jack Black has been picked up by NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project is based on A.J. Jacobs’ nonfiction book ""The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment,” and was made with a pilot order-with-penalty deal, the story says.
The show will focus on a man fixated on self-improvement through difficult experiments that put a strain on his family. Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa of " ‘Til Death" will write, the story says.
