EXCLUSIVE: NBC has put in development a multi-camera comedy produced by Bill Lawrence. Written by Dan Lagana, co-creator of the MTV series Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous, Stand-Up Guy centers on a young comedian who pursues his lifelong dream of being a working stand-up while juggling the growing responsibilities of being a husband and soon-to-be-father at home. Warner Bros TV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer are producing, with Lagana, Lawrence and Jeff Ingold executive producing. Lagana, repped by CAA and Karl Austen, also developed a dad comedy with WBTV two seasons ago when the project sold to Fox. ICM-repped Doozer, which has four series on the air – Cougar Town on TBS and upcoming Ground Floor on TBS, Surviving Jack on Fox and Undateable on NBC — also has a Jeff Astrof multi-camera comedy project at CBS with a put pilot commitment.
