NBC has given the green light to another comedy pilot, single-camera Welcome To The Family (formerly Chuey & Me). The project, written and executive produced by Rules Of Engagement executive producer Mike Sikowitz, chronicles how cultures collide when a white family and a Latino family are bonded together by their children who fall in love followed quickly by an unplanned pregnancy. Sony TV, where Sikowitz is under an overall deal, is producing. For those keeping score, this is NBC’s 11th comedy pilot this season. The network also has a presentation starring Jessica Simpson and Michael J. Fox’s straight-to-series half-hour, also from Sony TV. All but two projects are single-camera.
