Jones will produce the show alongside Will McCormack. A To Z is set in the world of an online dating company that details the “A to Z’s” of a relationship, from meeting to breakup. Cristina Milioti (fresh off of How I Met Your Mother) and Ben Feldman star.

This is the second comedy series picked up by NBC this season, Casey Wilson-led Marry Me being the first. Marry Me, from Happy Endings creator David Caspe, stars Casey Wilson and Ken Marino as Annie and Jake who have been dating for six years. When Jake is prepared to pop the question, Annie chastises him for not being able to commit. Instead of looking back on a messy proposal, the two decide to postpone the engagement until they can do it right. Sarah Wright, John Gemberling, Tymberlee Hill and Tim Meadows round out the cast. Saturday Night Live alum Meadows will play one of Annie’s two gay dads, Kevin.
