In anticipation of the NBC upfront next week, the network has placed a 13-episode order for a sitcom, Deadline.com reports. The comedy, “Save Me,” which stars Anne Heche, has been put on a fast track at the network and is targeted for an August launch.
The show, which was created and executive produced by John Scott Shepherd, revolves around a woman who undergoes a transformation from someone who has let herself go into a woman who is strong, empowered and "awakened."
Alexa Junge, a veteran from "Friends," is in talks to become "Save Me’s" showrunner. "Save Me" joins "Go On," the Matthew Perry comedy, as the first two comedies NBC has picked up. The network is looking to have both shows premiere right after the Summer Olympics.
