Comedian’s Life Inspires New NBC Project — Again

Oct 22, 2014  •  Post A Comment

NBC is taking another run at developing a comedy project based on the life and work of stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. Deadline.com reports that the network has a new untitled project in the works about Maniscalco, from “My Name Is Earl” creator Greg Garcia.

Maniscalco is expected to star in the project, which is about a newlywed trying to stick to his blue-collar background while surrounded by people he finds offensive, the story reports.

“This marks the second consecutive season that NBC has developed a comedy starring Maniscalco and based on his standup/life,” the article notes.

Maniscalco was featured on Vince Vaughn’s “Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights — Hollywood to the Heartland” in 2006, and has appeared on “Comedy Central Presents” along with making the rounds of the late-night talk shows and working the L.A. comedy clubs.

The new NBC project will be written by Austen Earl, who is a writer-producer on Garcia’s CBS series “The Millers.”

Maniscalco’s comedy special “Aren’t You Embarrassed” will air on Showtime Nov. 14.
