Craig Ferguson To Star In ABC Comedy Pilot “King of 7B” and Probably Forego Hosting a Show Soon
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
There has been more than plenty of speculation as to what Craig Ferguson was going to do post Late Late Show at CBS. For awhile, there was talk of him hosting a primetime syndicated talk show, which ended up falling through during negotiations with individual stations. Some have even tossed his hat in the ring for stepping in for Jon Stewart when he leaves The Daily Show.
Well, much of that chatter can now be quieted, for now at least, as Craig will be starring in the the ABC comedy pilot “King of 7B”. It’s a single camera comedy that follows Craig as an agoraphobic who tries to overcome his fear for love, possibly.
It’s only a pilot, so there’s the chance that he might end up doing something else later this year, but you can place a pretty safe bet it won’t be hosting a talk show that airs nightly.
