NBC orders Tumblr-based pilot

Got a Tumblr? Sell a pilot! All the kids are doing it.

EW has confirmed that the Peacock Network is the latest to put into development a pilot based on a Tumblr blog – in this case, one titled F–k, I’m in My Twenties.

The show, from 24-year-old Emma Koenig, will chronicle a young woman’s experience while living in New York City.

Sound familiar? It should. Between Girls and the recently announced development of a pilot based on the Hollywood Assistants Tumblr, it seems stories about young, overwhelmed 20-somethings are all the rage.
