The network has picked up an untitled comedy about a diverse group of detectives at a New York City precinct. Parks and Recreation duo Dan Goor and Mike Schur will serve as the writer-producers on the project.
Also breaking now: NBC has ordered one hour drama pilot from Universal Television titled I Am Victor, based on an upcoming Jo Nesbo novel. It’s about high powered divorce attorney with a unique view of relationships.
