Jim BreuerComedian Jim Breuer is developing a new, semi-autobiographical sitcom for NBC, reports Variety. The Saturday Night Live alum explained that the pilot was inspired by his time spent raising children and caring for his elderly parents.

“About seven or eight years ago I decided to walk away from everything and stay home to watch my kids grow,” said Breuer. “I also began looking after my parents, who were deep into their 80s. That led to a lot of humor.”

It really did. Those years spent off the radar recently came to an end with his special, Let’s Clear the Air, and More Than This, an upcoming documentary about Breuer going on tour with his father. Sound like a lot? Breuer also has a memoir in the works. Stay tuned for all of it.

And check out the interview we did with Jim this past July.
