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.”
Last month, Cook, 39, prepped for his TV foray with a guest stint on “Louie,” comedian Louis C.K.’s FX series. The episode addressed Dane’s alleged (real life) joke thievery.
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.”
Dane Cook, about as funny as leprosy. Glad his crap isn't gonna be on a TV weekly sitcom. He just sucks. People who laugh at his stolen material are morons.
Thanks i like your site. i got many information for your blog………..
the nickelback of comedians comments made the headlines. nice
Love Dane Cook.....always have! Hope the best for him and his new show....IF he gets it!
Dane Cook's target audience doesn't even watch TV. Hasn't NBC learned from his movie "career"? They don't make money therefore no one will watch this show. They are all on the internet or Facebook. It will probably be about how big his head is for his body and how much he loves himself.
Keep the comedy efforts coming. We need all the laughs we can get.
He enjoys giving weenee massage with his lips.
Cook sucks. Can't even do his own material. Seen part of one show he did and it looked as if he was having a stroke on stage. His show will be canceled after a few episodes.
He behaves like the idiot he is. I want to kick him in the face.
Good blog ,keep posting.....
He's not funny when he does the material he rips off from other comedians, why would he be funny in something he actually develops himself?
It's called Louis.
It's too bad they pick big name comics to develop shows instead of legitimately talented ones.
Noooooooooooooooooooooo! I just threw up in my mouth a little knowing D-bag Cook will have his own show. He's just painfully UNFUNNY.
Why is Dane Cook's 15 minutes not up yet? Seriously. He is like the Nickleback of comedians.
Best line ever!!
Hey CNN. Spellcheck. Learn it. Live it.
Development has no E.

That's funny - I count three of 'em...
yeah. he worked in the recieving dept at the fudge factory.
Dane Cook even seems gayer than Ashton Kutchner. That is really really really gay.
Where my fursuit people at? My fursona is a kitty. Meow! :3
Oh my, is he attempting to channel Ronnie James Dio? As a punishment for such a blasphemy Mr Cook should have numerous burnt weiners shoved up his butt and down his throat.
MAKES ME PORTALPUNK!
Love that the teaser said he's the Nickelback of Comedy!
