Deadline reports NBC is developing two TV show comedies from Seth Meyers, Broadway Video, and Universal Television. AP Bio comes from SNL‘s Patrick O’Brien, who is writing. He also executive produces with Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, and Andrew Singer. Learn more, after the jump.
For now, we will call the second comedy, “Untitled Amber Ruffin,” as it hails from the Late Night with Seth Meyers writer. It, “…centers on a has-been sibling singing group from the ’80s, who now make ends meet by doing what no musician wants to do – writing jingles and performing their old hits at parties.” Meyers, Shoemaker, and Singer will executive produce.
Here is more on AP Bio, from Deadline:
[AP Bio] focuses on a former philosophy professor who takes a job teaching AP biology and uses his students to get back at the people in his life who have wronged him. […]
The project reunites Meyers and O’Brien from their days together on SNL. O’Brien has been a writer on the sketch comedy series since 2009 and did a season-long stint as a featured player before returning to writing on the show.
