“Miranda Cosgrove is headed for broadcast. The ‘iCarly’ alum has been tapped to co-star in NBC’s untitled Suzanne Martin comedy pilot,” reports Lesley Goldberg in a scoop for the Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog.
Martin is the creator of TVLand’s “Hot in Cleveland.”
The story says the new sitcom is a “multigenerational family comedy [centering] on a couple of recent empty-nesters whose plans backfire when their two adult daughters move back home. Cosgrove is cast as the younger daughter, Shea, who has a doctorate in astrophysics and wants to be an astronaut, yet she is slightly socially awkward.”
The article also notes that James Burrows will direct the pilot and be an executive producer. Here’s just a short list of the shows Burrows has been associated with over the years: “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “Rhoda,” “Laverne & Shirley,” “Busting Loose,” “Cheers,” “Friends,” “Will & Grace,” “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory,” and “Mike & Molly.”
