It looks like the sitcom gods are working in our favor. The untitled John Mulaney project, which NBC passed on this past pilot season, has been given new life, thanks to Fox. The network has ordered a new version of the pilot script and if they like it, will order six episodes, reports Deadline. The sitcom, executive produced by Saturday Night Live honcho Lorne Michaels, was to star former SNL writer and stand-up comedian Mulaney as well as Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad and Elliot Gould, though recasting is possible. If picked up to series, the show would share network space with new series Brooklyn Nine-Nine (starring another SNL alum Andy Samberg), New Girl and The Mindy Project.
