NBC has handed a pilot order to Uninsured, a multi-camera comedy from The Goldbergs writer/co-executive producer Dan Levy, executive producer Doug Robinson and Sony Pictures TV where Robinson and his Doug Robinson Productions are based.
Uninsured was sold, written and delivered as single-camera. NBC has ordered it as a multi-camera pilot, and the script will be converted to fit the new format. Uninsured joins two other comedy pilots at NBC — both single-camera — Saving Kenan starring SNL’s Kenan Thompson and Like Magic.
Written by Levy, Uninsured centers around young parents Dave and Rebecca who end up having to take care of Dave’s parents who have mishandled their finances and need help to pay down a sizable debt.
The project is expected to touch upon social issues as the title refers to the fact that the family has no insurance.
Levy executive produces with Robinson and Alison Greenspan via Robinson’s Doug Robinson Productions. Sony TV is the studio.
Levy previously was a writer-producer on The Awesomes. He is repped by UTA and Jackoway Austen.
In addition to The Goldbergs, now in its sixth season on ABC, Robinson executive produces the spinoff series Schooled.
At NBC, Sony TV also has a pilot order for drama Lincoln, based on the Bone Collector book series.
