NBC Comedy Jerrod Carmichael

NBC has greenlit six episodes of a multi-cam sitcom starring comedian Jerrod Carmichael, Grey’s Anatomy Emmy winner Lorette Devine and In Living Color alum David Alan Grier.

Exec-produced by Carmichael, Neighbors director Nick Stoller and Playing House‘s Ravi Nandan, the as-yet-untitled comedy is inspired by Carmichael’s real-life relationships with his say-anything, contrarian father (to be played by Grier), his therapist-in training girlfriend Entertainment Weekly Hosts Celebration Honoring Nominees For The Screen Actors Guild Awards(Greek‘s Amber Stevens West, right), his ever-hustling brother (Friends of the People‘s Lil Rel Howery) and his mother (Devine) who is “always, always, always right with Jesus.”

“We’re excited to be going forward to series with Jerrod,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see how he and his outstanding cast deliver the funny.”
