UPDATE: NBC Picks Up Comedy Pilots From Dan Mazer & Tom Werner, Gary Sanchez Prods, And JJ Philbin & Jason Katims

Nellie Andreeva

philbin2ND UPDATE, 4:40 PM: Here is NBC‘s third and final comedy pilot order of the day for Ellen More Or Less (previously Formerly Fat Girl), written by JJ Philbin and executive produced by Jason Katims, who is behind NBC’s new comedy series About A Boy. The single-camera, from Universal TV and Katims’ True Jack Prods, is loosely based on the nonfiction book 10 Lessons From A Former Fat Girl and centers on an average-size woman who, after losing 100 pounds, begins reinventing herself in life and love. NBC gave the project, executive produced by Philbin, Katims and Michelle Lee a pilot production commitment in September. The pickup means that both high-profile single-camera comedy projects this season about a formerly fat protagonist have gotten a green light — Fox recently ordered Fatrick, which is already casting. For those counting at home, NBC has picked up 7 comedy pilots so far, plus series orders to the Tina Fey/Robert Carlock project and Mr. Robinson.

davidhornsbyUPDATE, 4:18 PM: NBC has also picked up to pilot Mission Control, a Universal TV-produced comedy from studio-based Gary Sanchez Productions and executive producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. How To Be A Gentleman creator-star David Hornsby wrote and exec produces the pilot, a workplace ensemble said to be in the tone of Anchorman. Set in 1962, it examines what happens when a strong woman butts heads with a macho astronaut in the race to land on the moon. Read More »
