Fred Savage is set to direct a comedy pilot for NBC “from ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ co-executive producer Kourtney Kang and creator/executive producer Nahnatchka Khan,” reports our friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

The story notes that the show is based on Kang’s life and “centers on young Katie (Isabella Russo), [exploring] what it’s like to grow up as the only girl in the only mixed-race family in the suburbs of Philadelphia.”  Katie “deals with real-world issues like race and gender while never losing focus of her life goal: to become a Laker Girl like her idol Paula Abdul.”
