Parenthood's Monica Potter to Star in NBC Comedy Pilot

Monica Potter NBC Comedy Pilot

Monica Potter might not be straying from NBC after Parenthood‘s end.

The Peacock network has given a pilot production commitment to a half-hour comedy starring the actress and executive-produced by Ellen DeGeneres, our sister site Deadline reports.

Details about the project’s premise are not available, but according to Deadline it is loosely based on Potter’s own life.

The multi-cam pilot is penned by I Hate My Teenage Daughter creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer. Potter will also serve as a producer.

    Oooh fun! I’ve never seen her in anything but Parenthood, but she’s a great actress and I’d happily watch her in a comedy.

    I’m waiting to hear about the premise – is it possibly about a mom who’s also an actress?

  9. Abby says:

    Considering she’s made light of having a kid in her teens, 20s and 30s, I can see where this is going. I also love Monica Potter and Ellen so I’m down.

  10. Perfect! Over the past season and a half or so, she’s brought some comic relief to Parenthood (especially now, dealing with the school and all)
