Maya Rudolph and Martin Short Get Their Shot at an NBC Variety Series

Can they make it work?

Megan Vick

Maya Rudolph is finally getting her variety show. Variety reports that Rudolph and Martin Short's Maya and Marty in Manhattan is a go at NBC.

The pickup comes after Neil Patrick Harris' NBC variety series Best Time Ever was dropped after one season. However, Rudolph has been planning a variety series for some time: The SNL alum hosted her own variety special in 2014 on the peacock network.

Lorne Michaels will executive-produce the series, but an episode order hasn't been set. Rudolph, Short and Matt Roberts (Late Show with David Letterman) will produce.

The show will be a weekly live combination of music numbers, sketches and celebrity guests, and will be filmed inside NBC's headquarters at 30 Rock in New York City.
