NBC ordered four new comedy pilots Wednesday, including projects from Chelsea Handler and Whitney Cummings.
Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea is based on Handler's best-selling book of the same name. Inspired by the life of the E! late-night host, the comedy follows a group of twentysomethings — led by an outspoken young woman — living and working together. Handler will serve as an executive producer along with Tom Werner, Mike Clements (Life and Times of Tim) and Tom Brunelle. Julie Larson (Rent) and Dottie Dartland Zicklin (Dharma & Greg) wrote the pilot.

Looks like Wonder Woman will again fly to the small screen after all: NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's pilot about the DC Comics superheroine, Deadline reports.
The order comes two weeks after networks, including NBC, initially passed on the project. According to Deadline, the Peacock was interested in Wonder Woman two weeks ago, but was forced to turn it down as NBC Universal's merger with Comcast was still in flux. The $13.8 billion deal was approved Tuesday, allowing new Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt to move forward with the pickup.
