Comedian Eddie Izzard has signed a one-year talent holding deal with Eddie Izzard, Variety reports. The network will develop potential projects around Izzard or cast him in previously-existing pilots, with Izzard set to receive an executive producer credit on a series if he is cast as the lead. Izzard recently guest starred on two episodes of the NBC drama Hannibal, and he's set to appear in the show's upcoming second season. With NBC's new comedies Sean Saves the World and Michael J. Fox Show struggling in the ratings, there's plenty of room for a new sitcom starring Eddie Izzard on the schedule next season.
