Another comedian is moving to network TV: Dane Cook is set to develop and star in his own NBC comedy, Deadline reports.
The sitcom is slated for next fall, and is in line with the new spate of primetime programming featuring stand-up comics. Sarah Silverman is also working on a show for NBC, plus we have new sitcom “Whitney” (featuring Whitney Cummings) and Chelsea Handler’s mid-season replacement “Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea.”
The actor also appeared on “Hawaii Five-O” in February.
But Cook’s new TV endeavor doesn’t mean he’s retired from movies. You can catch him in upcoming flicks “Answers to Nothing,” “Detention” and “Guns, Girls & Gambling.”
