If it's crap ... We'll tell you
NBC continues to make series orders and they've just picked up Anne Heche's new comedy, Save Me, according to Deadline Hollywood's Nellie Andreeva:
It looks like it’s starting — NBC has picked up to series comedy Save Me starring Anne Heche with a 13-episode order. It was one of the pilots which were allowed to start making staffing offers and has been fast-tracked for an August launch. I’ve learned that Alexa Junge is in negotiations to come on board as showrunner of the project, from Original Film & Television. The single-camera comedy, written/executive produced by John Scott Shepherd, stars Anne Heche as a woman who lets herself – and her marriage – go until she undergoes an “awakening” that transforms her spiritually and physically into a desirable and outspoken woman who just might be channeling god. This is NBC’s second newly-picked up series for next season, along with another single-camera comedy, the Matthew Perry starrer Go On, which was picked up last month. Both are being eyed for a premiere right after NBC’s coverage of the Summer Olympics. This is the first of a slew of pickups expected at NBC over the next couple of days, which is first at bat to present to advertisers exactly a week from now. Likely to join Go On And Save me are the NBC comedy pilots that have been making staffing offers, The New Normal, 1600 Penn, Guys With Kids and Revolution. Friends alumna Junge most recently served as showrunner on NBC’s midseason comedy BFFs.
It's been very quiet for the last few weeks but it's now looking like things are finally starting to pick up. So, keep it here for more updates.
