NBC has handed an early pilot order to Bad Judge, a single-camera comedy starring and executive produced by former Private Practice star Kate Walsh.

It centers on a hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman (Walsh) who plays with the law, and whose life on the edge is constantly in balance as she also happens to be a judge in the criminal court system. Universal TV, where Gary Sanchez Prods. and Heche have deals, is producing. Heche and Jill Messick executive produce alongside Walsh, Kultgen, Ferrell and McKay. Bad Judge was a late pitch buy last development season, and emerged as a contender for an off-cycle pilot order in March when Walsh started circling the project. Read More »

Hung co-creator/ executive producer Colette Burson has teamed with the series’ co-star Anne Heche for another half-hour single-camera project, this time at NBC. The two will co-write the comedy, which may serve as a potential starring vehicle for Heche. It centers on Beauty Department Sales Manager Poppy Blake, 43, who questions everything about love and relationships. With the help of her hilariously opinionated sister Chelsea, her romantically deprived co-workers, and a vast array of department store clients, Poppy turns a comic yet anthropological eye on what love and sex really mean for women. The project stems from Heche’s first-look deal with Universal Television, which will produce the comedy. Burson and Heche executive produce. This marks the first half-hour network sale for Burson who, along with her husband — Hung co-creator Dmitry Lipkin — have a cable overall deal at Fox 21. She is with UTA and Gang Tyre. Heche, repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment and Morris Yorn, is doing an arc on NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show. Read More »
