NBC Gets Another Weight-Loss Show


NBC will bring the concept behind The Biggest Loser into the scripted realm, having won a bidding war for a show called Big Men. The comedy about a group of dudes attempting to lose weight together will be written by Chris O'Dowd, the star of the U.K.'s IT Crowd who is best known here for playing the very lovable Officer Nathan Rhodes in Bridesmaids.
