We live in a great time for television. From killer programming on network TV and cable, to premium and streaming services, there’s no shortage of amazing shows to watch.
On top of that, ABC and NBC have been ordering comedy pilots like it’s nobody’s business, and we don’t hate it.
And somehow, things just got even better.
ABC just officially ordered a comedy pilot for a sitcom with…drum roll please…Carol Burnett and Amy Poehler.
Poehler is set to executive produce the show, with Burnett starring in a leading role. Entitled Household Name, the comedy is written by Michael Saltzman, who has worked on Mad Men, Murphy Brown, The Pink Panther, and The Middle.
Reports Deadline, “Household Name is about a family who gets a chance to buy the house of their dreams but under extremely abnormal circumstances: They must live with the current owner, an eccentric, larger-than-life actress (Burnett) — until she dies”.
We are so ready for this.
