Seth Meyers developing two scripted comedies at NBC
Seth Meyers is stepping behind the camera.
The "Late Night With Seth Meyers" host is developing two scripted comedy series with the network he calls home, NBC, Variety has learned.
Meyers is executive producing an untitled single-camera comedy, which hails from writer Amber Ruffin, a writer/actress from "Late Night with Seth Meyers." The project is about a has-been sibling singing group from the 1980's that now make ends-meet by doing what no musician wants to do — writing jingles and performing their old hits at parties. Ruffin will serve as co-executive producer, and Meyers will exec produce with Mike Shoemaker and Andrew Singer.
The second project, titled "AP Bio," is a comedy about a former philosophy professor who takes a job teaching AP biology and uses his students to get back at the people in his life who have wronged him. "Saturday Night Live" writer/actor Michael Patrick O'Brien penned the pilot and will serve as an executive producer with Meyers, Shoemaker and Singer.
Both potential series hail from Universal Television and Lorne Michael's company Broadway Video.
