NBC lands Jack Black comedy series

Funnyman Jack Black’s stepping behind the camera to produce an upcoming comedy series. According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC is developing a show with the comedian.

NBC has given a script commitment to the currently untitled show, which has a modern premise: an Internet love story.

The script, from “30 Minutes or Less” writer Michael Diliberti, follows two “sweet but colossally unfit young people who meet online and fall into a sudden, uncontrollable bout of true love, much to the disapproval of most everyone in their lives.”

Do you think you would tune in?

    I think it would make a good show, however, Jack Black ideally would be in a show where he's in a band though. Not a famous band but a normal local band trying to make it big but having to work normal day jobs. We all know those guys, Jack Black is a comedy and musical genius when it comes to rock.

    Seems like a good premise. I'll give it a shot.

    NBC has some pretty great prime-time shows these days (30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Community), so maybe it'll add to a great Thursday line-up.
    Or it could be another "Outsourced". *shudder*

    I loooove Jack Black and will watch anything that has to do with him. Munster, I couldn't agree more. If I could go out with anyone in the film industry, it would be Jack. Sorry, Mrs. Black!!

    @LuvJackVlack; he is not ON the show, he's "stepping behind the camera to produce," I don't think it'll be that funny without him doing the acting. But I'll give it a whirl.

    Mr. Black is an awkwardly funny everyman. Mimicking the goofball in all of us. I'll watch it.

    Jack Black is strangely hot. This could work, me thinks. *shrug* I like guys that make me laugh, hence my over whelming love for trolls. =] I can't wait, today is another day and there's trollin to be had.
