NBC Developing Multi-Cam Family Comedy ‘I Love Lakshmi’


NBC has a new family comedy in the works. Deadline reports that the network has put into development a multi-cam comedy called I Love Lakshmi from Muffy Bolding and Doug Prochilo, which is based on Prochilo’s real-life experience of marrying into Universal TV president Bela Bajaria’s Indian family. The series will follow “the trials and tribulations of new parents, Danny and Lakshmi, as they endure Lakshmi’s own meddlesome immigrant parents — whose version of the American dream never included a Danny.” I Love Lakshmi isn’t the only sitcom starring Indian American characters currently in the works at NBC – Amy Poehler is also producing Pre-Madonna from filmmaker Nisha Ganatra about a girl named Sarita Gupta “entering a Chicago high school in 1983 and navigating the painful and hilarious path of finding out who she really is.”
