NBC buys Ryan Murphy comedy pilot

Posted on

Ryan Murphy’s schedule just got a little scarier: Only a week after launching the FX drama American Horror Story, he has sold a comedy pilot to NBC, following a bidding war also involving Fox and ABC, EW has confirmed. If the single-camera project — which reportedly centers on a gay couple and the surrogate who will carry their child — is picked up by the Peacock for next fall, it could represent his fourth active series on the air. (In addition to AHS, he’s bringing you Fox’s Glee and Oxygen’s The Glee Project.)

Murphy will create and executive produce the NBC show with Glee co-exec producer Allison Adler, and the pair will co-write the pilot.
