SINGLE LADY

NBC Picks Up Ellen DeGeneres’ New Singleton Sitcom

Ellen DeGeneres, who just entered the 10th season of her eponymous talk show, isn’t letting any moss grow under her feet: The lesbian powerhouse is producing an unnamed sitcom for NBC alongside Lauren Pomerantz, a senior writer on her daytime chatfest.

Details on the show are still vague but it supposedly revolves around a successful single woman in her 30s who is re-evaluating her romantic life—or lack thereof— with the help of friends and family. (Gee, doesn’t that kind of sound like Ellen’s own landmark sitcom from years gone by?)

This is the second show to get picked up from DeGeneres’ company,  A Very Good Production: Earlier this year The Smart One—starring Ellen’s wife Portia de Rossi, Malin Ackerman, and Jean Smart—was greenlighted for a pilot by ABC.
