What’s old is new again at NBC which has given a pilot green light to Friends-In-Law, a multi-camera comedy from The McCarthys creator/executive producer Brian Gallivan, The Conners executive producer Tom Werner and Warner Bros. TV.
NBC originally developed and ordered Friends-In-Law to pilot last development season. Gallivan’s script is now being re-piloted. I hear that Pamela Fryman, who helmed last year’s pilot, has been approached about returning as director.
Written by Gallivan, Friends-In-Law centers on Brian and Jake, polar opposites who must quickly figure out how to coexist when their respective best friends decide to get married.
The 2018 pilot starred Devere Rogers and James Davis as Brian and Jake, respectively, with Nicole Parker and John Gemberling as their alter-bound friends.
NBC so far has picked up four comedy pilots for next season, two single-camera, including the Kenan Thompson starrer Saving Kenan, and two multi-camera.
Gallivan is repped by UTA.
