New Sarah Silverman Sitcom Coming to NBC


Score one for NBC. The network, home to most of our favorite (if not TV’s most popular) sitcoms, has won a bidding war and nabbed another big name in comedy: Sarah Silverman. NBC has committed to a put pilot of Silverman’s new show, for which she’ll write (along with Sarah Silverman Program collaborators Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder), executive produce, and star as a woman who’s newly single after spending most of her adult life in a relationship. The premise sounds somewhat conventional, considering how bizarre her last show was and how controversial her stand-up tends to be, but we have faith that Silverman will find a way to spice it up.
