NBC May Offer Lady-Centric Comedy Block This Fall

Though NBC has yet to pick up any of the pilots ordered for fall, insiders report that the network is considering putting an entire night of women-centric comedy on the fall schedule.

Said potential programming would include the new offering from Chelsea Handler, where she'll produce a show loosely based upon her life starring That 70's Show's Laura Prepon. It would also showcase the untitled project from Emily Spivey — which will star Christina Applegate and Will Arnett — and the pilot from comedian Whitney Cummings that NBC also ordered. Keep in mind that this is all a big if, because NBC has to decide that they actually like the shows they've ordered. But this block of entertainment sounds promising — and could only be better is if they steal Kathie Lee and Hoda from Today's 4th hour to host!
