Pilot Scoop: Mark-Paul Gosselaar Joins NBC's People Are Talking

Mark-Paul Gosselaar People Are Talking

Saved By the Bell vet Mark-Paul Gosselaar is going back to his comedy roots, landing a starring role in NBC’s sitcom pilot People are Talking, TVLine has learned.

The multi-cam project from Growing Up Fisher‘s DJ Nash examines sex, race and everything else your parents told you never to talk about.

Gosselaar will play Mitch, a neurotic and optimistic college ethics professor who goes through life with a heightened attention to justice. Mitch knows he can’t change the world, but he’s determined to change his corner of it.

Tone Bell (Bad Judge) co-stars as Mitch’s best friend and neighbor Russell.

Gosselaar is coming off of a four-year run on TNT’s Franklin & Bash. He also recently recurred on CSI.

    This is a strange premise for a comedy. I hope the writers are really good, if not, it won’t last long. That said, I’d watch just to see if they can make it work.

    I hate to see Franklin & Bash cancelled. I loved the banter between them. I may give this show a chance but does not sound like my kind of show.

    Wow! That pic is the best he’s ever looked! Smokin’!

      @Temperance – I was thinking the same thing. Even though he really was hot on F&B too!!! But that smoldering look with the facial hair and short haircut works WONDERS for his hotness.
