Comedy lovers, rejoice!
NBC has ordered a new half-hour comedy pilot with some of the network’s best known writers and producers involved. Mike O’Brien (writer/actor on SNL), Seth Meyers (SNL and Late Night), and Lorne Michaels (SNL, Fallon, 30 Rock, Late Night, Portlandia, everything) are involved in the production of the pilot.
The unnamed project, previously entitled AP Bio, “centers on a hilariously cynical Ivy League professor who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school biology teacher where he imposes his unorthodox teaching style and uses the kids to plot out revenge on those who wronged him”, according to Deadline.
With the stunning success of NBC’s new series This is Us and The Good Place, we have our bar set pretty high for this pilot.
