Amy Poehler Baby Pilot

NBC Orders Amy Poehler's The Baby Pilot, Starring Seann William Scott

Mazel tov! Amy Poehler and Sean William Scott are having a baby — sort of.

NBC has ordered from Poehler’s production company a pilot for The Baby, a comedy in which Scott will play the youngest made man in an otherwise-all-female crime family, our sister site Deadline reports. Although on the job his character is as tough as they come, after hours, he gets bossed around by his mother and — yikes! — seven big sisters.

“Amy is one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking voices in comedy,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said of the Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation alumna. “We’re very excited to work with her on The Baby.” For those keeping track, Poehler’s production company is also behind Comedy Central’s Broad City and Hulu’s Difficult People.

What do you think? The Baby sounds like fun, no? Who would you cast as the mom?

    It sounds like a show with a LOT of opportunities for actresses.

    I’m a little confused. Is Amy in this or just producer?

    • Ashley says:

      I imagine it will be like Tina in Kimmy Schmidt. I’m sure she’ll pop up at some point, even if its just as some relative of the family we’ll see from time to time.

    Glad Sean William Scott will be seen on screen again. Cool Amy’s Producing the show. Hope she makes a cameo in the show.

    And the latest movie actor to have a tv show: Seann William Scott. He must be finally out of that American Pie money.

    • Yolanda says:

      I think that ship sailed long time ago. Even Dwayne Johnson is doing HBO show. You know, one of the biggest movie stars in the world, getting paid 8 figure salary per movie. Yeah it’s so embarrassing to do TV these days…

      • Doesn’t change the fact that Seann William Scott’s career WAS in a free fall. Not an opinion. I, personally, think he’s funny but he got old for a lot of movie goers. He HAD to do something to stop the leaking of his career.

  5. Ron says:

    Wait, is Amy also starring, or is this just a show from her production company? I need Amy back on my TV screen regularly. (*huddles in a corner and cries, still mourning the end of P&R*)

    Good for Sean William Scott! Hope he won’t botch this opportunity. It appears he is insurable which means his stock had gone up in Hollywood. Always been a fan, even through his wild days.

    Seann William Scott is pushing forty years old right now. If he’s playing the baby brother, will we actually get seven actresses in their forties-fifties (maaaaybe late 30s) to play the sisters? Or would casting not go for that?
