New Sarah Silverman Comedy? New Sarah Silverman Comedy!
Update: The show has apparently landed at NBC, with a put-pilot commitment
I love Sarah Silverman. That’s why the news that she’s shopping a new comedy program, which has already started a bidding war has me very excited:
We have the first major bidding war of the season — I hear ABC, NBC and Fox are in pursuit of Imagine TV/20th Century Fox TV’s untitled Sarah Silverman comedy co-written by and starring the irreverent comedian, with at least 2 networks, ABC and NBC, offering major commitments. (CBS has not heard the pitch yet).
Oh yeah, CBS, the official network of old people and illiterates who find Two and a Half Men funny is really going to bid on a Sarah Silverman comedy, which will no doubt push the envelope and actually be funny. I don’t think I’ve been this excited to see a TV show come out since Community.
