The prodigal network returns to its best comedy showrunners with ideas that are adjacent to Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock. It’s about time that happened.
NBC has really focused in on dramas leaving comedies by the wayside as of late. With their new comedy slate announced today, they’re hoping to change that.
Mike Schur, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the minds behind the aforementioned, Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock, some of NBC’s most decorated comedies in recent memory, have gotten new life at the network.
NBC ordered Schur’s The Good Place that will focus on a woman contending with what being good really entails and a pilot from Fey and Carlock that will follow a mother and her daughter as they work at a cable news network with the mother as an intern.
We sincerely hope that this is the shot in the arm that NBC comedy needs and that’ll play out even better than the series that Schur, Fey, and Carlock brought to the peacock.
