NBC Readies New Sketch Comedy Show
Move over, Saturday Night Live — there's a new sketch comedy series coming to NBC.
The network has partnered with Lou Wallach, the former senior vice president of original programming at Comedy Central, for the as-yet-untitled show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. NBC plans to send talent scouts to major cities around the country to find performers in the improv and stand-up circuits to make up the show's cast.
