NBC Greenlights Pilots from Greg Daniels and Will Ferrell & Adam McKay

NBC just ordered up three comedy pilots. They are as follows:

  • Assistance, created by Leslye Headland (BacheloretteTerriers) and produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay via Gary Sanchez Productions. It follows a hard-working assistant who is pulled between her "work husband" and her real life fiancé.
  • Donor Party, a New Normal-esque comedy created by Geyer Kosinski (Magic City) and actor Alex Schemmer (Community) about an irresponsible dude who has to grow up when he learns he has kids resulting from his sperm donor days.
  • An untitled show created by The Office writer Robert Padnick and produced by Office/Parks and Rec/King of the Hill mastermind Greg Daniels. It's about a 20something guy and his three best friends who are pushing him to get back on the dating horse. It's one of five shows Daniels has in development this season, and the first one of the five to be ordered to pilot. The dude is gonna be swamped if they somehow all get picked up to series.
  • Jessica

    Assistance sounds entirely like the Office from Pam's perspective circa seasons 1-3 .
