NBC Orders Pilots to Jimmy Fallon Workplace Comedy and Monica Potter Starrer


Fallon will executive produce 'Sharing' about different groups working side by side in a shared office space, while 'Parenthood' star Potter will play a woman who has been married thrice.
NBC has added two more projects to its slate. The network has just ordered pilots to a workplace comedy from Jimmy Fallon and a starring vehicle for "Parenthood" actress Monica Potter.

"Sharing", from "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" host, is a single-camera comedy about the different groups of people working side by side in a shared office space. "The Mindy Project" writer Jeremy Bronson will pen the script and executive produce the Universal Television and Eight Million Plus project with Fallon and Rick Schwartz.

The untitled comedy starring Potter, meanwhile, is a multi-camera project from Warner Bros. TV and Ellen DeGeneres' studio-based A Very Good Production. It follows a woman (Potter) juggling her busy family life as well as her three ex-husbands, which proves difficult when she starts dating again.

"I Hate My Teenage Daughter" creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer will write the pilot and executive produce it along with DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman.

Potter stars on NBC's "Parenthood" which will air its final episode on Thursday, January 29 after six seasons. She is one of the original cast members on the critically-acclaimed family drama series.

"Sharing" and the untitled Potter project join a slew of dramas and comedies which have been ordered to pilots by the network, including "Endgame" from "The Blacklist" producers, "Blindspot" from Greg Berlanti, and "Unveiled" from "The Bible" producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
