NBC has given the green light to an untitled multi-camera comedy from Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney and SNL honcho Lorne Michaels. The project, produced by Universal TV, Michaels’ Broadway Video and 3 Arts, is a young ensemble comedy starring standup Mulaney that is loosely based on his life. Mulaney wrote the pilot, which he is executive producing with Michaels, Broadway’s Andrew Singer and 3 Arts’ Dave Becky and David Miner. On SNL, Mulaney co-created with Bill Hader the Stefon character and has appeared on Weekend Update. This marks the fourth NBC multi-camera comedy pilot this season vs. 10 single-camera pilots, one straight-to series (Michael J. Fox) and one presentation (Jessica Simpson).
