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.
Does art imitate life for Grace Gummer (daughter of Meryl Streep), who plays Anna, a famous actor's daughter, on TeenNick's new series Gigantic? "Not really," Gummer tells TVGuide.com. "I grew up in a very small town in Connecticut. I was out of that whole [Hollywood] scene. I went to summer camp and I babysat."
Danny isn't the kind of cop to let something like diplomatic immunity get in the way of putting a perpetrator behind bars, especially when the suspect is wanted in a rape case. But how to do it? Tonight, Danny gets Erin and Frank to help him figure that out when the three of them work together within the system, they can make sure that justice wins out...and that a rapist doesn't go free. — Tim Holland
