Variety reports that NBC are currently developing a new single camera comedy project titled Business as Usual with 21 Jump Street‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller set to executive produce the series through their Lord Miller Productions banner.
Business as Usual was written by Family Guy‘s Hayes Davenport who will also serve as executive producer for the show. The story was described as comedy about everyday employees at a company in crisis, trying to keep their jobs and maintain their relationships as their workplace goes insane.
According to outlet’s source, the comedy project has garnered a significant interest with multiple networks trying to acquire its rights but NBC was the network that prevailed through the bidding war.
