NBC has picked up Vulture fave and former SNL writer-producer John Mulaney’s pilot, the network announced today. The untitled show, produced by Lorne Michaels, is a multi-camera ensemble comedy that Mulaney created and will write and star in. Our dreams of having Mulaney write a Law & Order tribute satire (or SVU spoof) are dashed, but a new dream is born. And that dream is for this show to be good.
