'Anchorman' co-star develops NBC variety/sketch pilot
NBC is continuing to poke around with possible variety programming, ordering a pilot for an hour-long sketch/variety show from David Koechner.
Per Deadline.com, the "Anchorman" co-star will executive produce along with Lou Wallach and Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes.
Koechner has worked at NBC on "Saturday Night Live" and then in a recurring capacity on "The Office." He also had a talent deal with NBC back in 2012. He most recently did a comedy pilot for A&E.
Fresh off the success of "The Sound of Music," NBC is eying a number of sketch/variety/alternative comedy programs, including a project from Maya Rudolph.
Stay tuned to see if any of these go forward.
