Michael Patrick King’s Hairdresser Show Lands at NBC

Vulture broke the news yesterday that writer-director Michael Patrick King would try to erase the memory of his Razzie Awards front-runner Sex and the City 2 by creating his first new TV series in five years, a Shampoo-esque project about a straight hairdresser going through a midlife crisis. We told you he was very publicly shopping it to the networks, personally delivering his spec script to execs. Now — boom! — NBC has begun talks to land the project, an insider confirms. It's unclear what sort of commitment the Peacock will have to make to get the project, but our spies had been hearing King's studio was looking for a deal that would guarantee at least the production of a pilot.
