Scoop: NBC's Monica Potter Comedy Is DOA (For Now, At Least)

Monica Potter NBC Comedy Pilot

NBC and Parenthood star Monica Potter are getting a divorce. Or is it a trial separation?

Either way, the Peacock network has decided not to move forward with its untitled comedy pilot starring Potter and exec-procuced by Ellen DeGeneres, TVLine has learned.

According to multiple sources, NBC and Warner Bros. (the studio behind the project) mutually agreed to put the pause button on the potential series for creative reasons, with an eye towards redeveloping it next season.

The multi-cam project revolved around Potter’s Bridget, whose dating life is complicated by her busy family and her three ex-husbands (played by Eddie Cibrian, Donald Faison and Rory Scovel). 

The pilot was penned by I Hate My Teenage Daughter creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer.
