NBC is back in business with Kari Lizer, giving a put pilot commitment to a multi-camera comedy from the New Adventures Of Old Christine creator. Titled Wing Mom, the project from Warner Bros TV, where Lizer’s company Kari’s Logo Here is based, is inspired by Lizer’s relationship with her adult children. It centers on a divorced woman who has been waiting until her two kids were grown before starting to date again. When her 18-year-old son starts to offer her romance advice, she quickly realizes that he and his friends actually need her help — they need a wingmom.
Lizer had two pilots at NBC in the past couple of years, an untitled comedy starring Sarah Paulson in 2011 and Lady Friends starring Minnie Driver and Andrea Anders in 2012. Lizer’s relationship with NBC dates back to her four-year tenure on the network’s last big multi-camera comedy hit, the Emmy-winning Will & Grace. Max Mutchnick and David Kohan’s gay-themed sitcom today was inducted into the Smithsonian, with memorabilia from the series included in National Museum of American History’s history of LGBT Americans collection.
Lizer is repped by Scott Schwartz of Vision Art.
