Adam Campbell, who recurred on the first season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, is reuniting with the Netflix comedy’s creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock on their NBC pilot. Campbell is set to co-star in the project, written/executive produced by 30 Rock alumna Tracey Wigfield.
The single-camera comedy centers on an already inseparable mother-daughter relationship that becomes more complicated when the mom accepts an internship at her daughter’s workplace, a news program where the daughter, Katie, is a segment producer. Campbell will play Greg, the recently-named executive producer of the show. Harvard-educated and the son of a famous news anchor father, Greg is energetic and driven, constantly trying to put out fires and manage the show’s difficult anchor. Greg and Katie butt heads when he hires her mother as an intern.
Wigfield exec produces with Fey, Carlock and David Miner.
Mixology alum Campbell is repped by ICM Partners, manager Steven Levy and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
