NBC has ordered its first comedies for the 2018-2019 TV season, placing orders for four multicamera pilots, Variety reports.
“Two of the projects boast ‘Will & Grace’ star Sean Hayes as an executive producer,” the report notes. “The first is titled ‘Like Family’ and follows Aubrey and Artie, who formed the tightest of sibling-like bonds growing up together in foster care. But they are now discovering that such closeness makes adulthood even more complicated.”
Variety adds: “The other project is ‘So Close,’ which follows hopeless romantics Riley and Kyle. They are close to settling for the wrong partner, unaware that they live only blocks apart and may be each other’s soul mates.”
NBC also ordered a pilot for “Abby’s,” with Josh Malmuth set to write and executive produce and Mike Schur and David Miner also executive producing.
Also on tap is a pilot for “Friends-in-Law,” with Brian Gallivan as writer and executive producer and Tom Werner also executive producing.
