Comedy writer-producer Suzanne Martin is reteaming with Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s Hazy Mills for another comedy series project. The single-camera half-hour has been set at NBC. Universal TV, where Hazy Mills is based, is the studio.
Written by Martin, the untitled comedy centers on a sweet, funny but lonely funeral director who decides to have a one-night stand on his birthday with his complete opposite and winds up with a big, instant, messy family. It follows the lives and loves of this new family and the families they are connected to as well as the unusual business that connects them daily with matters of life and death.
Martin’s previous collaborations with Hazy Mills have yielded three series — all created by Martin — Hot in Cleveland and spinoff The Soul Man on TV Land and Crowded on NBC.
At NBC, Hazy Mills has drama series Grimm, which is heading into its sixth and final season, and game show Hollywood Game Night.
