I hear NBC has ordered 6 episodes of Next, the Paul Reiser-written pilot that honcho Jeff Gaspin liked so much and that was considered an early frontrunner. (Having 7 backup scripts was an advantage too.) Reiser also stars in and executive produces. The last time Paul Reiser created a sitcom that was picked up by NBC, it was the major hit Mad About You and ran from 1992 all the way to 1999 on the network. So he’s back where he belongs.
