Martin Short, Elliott Gould Join John Mulaney’s NBC Sitcom

We’d heard Martin Short was in talks to join former SNL writer-producer John Mulaney’s semi-autobiographical NBC pilot, but it’s always good to toss an Elliott Gould bonus in with the “Yes, Short is definitely on board” news. Short will play a game show host paying Mulaney to write jokes; Gould will play Mulaney’s neighbor. The Lorne Michaels-produced sitcom seems closer to a pickup already.
