NBC is widening its relationship with the team behind the network’s sophomore series “Superstore.” The network has put the half-hour comedy “Mail Order Family” into development, Deadline.com reports.
The project comes from “Superstore” writer-producer Jackie Clarke, director-executive producer Ruben Fleischer and executive producer David Bernad.
Fleischer has an overall deal at Universal TV, the studio behind the project.
“Written and executive produced by Clarke, ‘Mail Order Family’ is loosely based on Clarke’s family,” the story reports. “It follows a widowed single father who orders a mail-order bride from the Philippines to help raise his two pre-teen daughters.”
“Superstore” was recently given a full-season order for season two.
