NBC has given a presentation order to an untitled comedy written by and starring Upright Citizens Brigade alums Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair. The single-camera project, from Scot Armstrong and Ravi Nandan’s American Work and UMS, is a comedy triangle centered on a woman (Parham) and her new live-in boyfriend. They find themselves taking in her distraught (and pushy) best girlfriend (St. Clair) who ends up on their doorstep after a divorce. Parham, St. Clair, Armstrong and Nandan are all exec producing. The pilot order stems from American Work’s first-look deal with NBC. The company previously produced the network’s 2009 comedy pilot Off Duty.
