NBC orders gay-themed comedy pilot developed by Ellen DeGeneres

The 40th Annual People's Choice Awards - Backstage And AudienceFollowing the cancellation the series “The New Normal” and the lack of success “Sean Saves The World” has seen, NBC is trying its hand again at a gay-themed series. According to Entertainment Weekly on Jan. 28, the network has ordered a pilot called “One Big Happy” developed by Warner Bros. TV and Ellen DeGeneres.

The comedy will draw from a component of NBC’s last successful comedy series featuring gay characters, “Will & Grace”. A tagline of the show says: “When gay and straight best friends decide to have a baby together, things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life.”

Liz Feldman, who currently writes for the CBS comedy “Bloke Girls”, has written the script for the pilot that NBC is hoping has the same success as “Will & Grace”. With Ellen DeGeneres involved, the show should draw an immediate audience, however, the challenge will be maintaining that audience.

Although “The New Normal” received praise from critics, the show was still canceled. With “One Big Happy” containing elements from both “Will & Grace” and “The New Normal”, maybe NBC has found ingredients for a winning gay-themed comedy.

His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
