Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” may be in repeats this week, but that doesn’t mean the comedian hasn’t been busy. Fallon has locked in a deal with NBC for three new comedy pilots from his production company, according to Variety.

The report states that the potential series include a show about a former rapper who juggles his fame and family dubbed “Fat Rob,” a story of dads in their 30s blending responsibility with immaturity in “DILFs” and “Rick,” about a man who is the step-dad to a man his own age.

Fallon’s been on a roll lately. On NBC, his “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” bested CBS’ “Late Late Show” by 27% among viewers 18-49 last week. With recent appearances on everything from “Top Chef” to “The Dr. Oz Show” (not to mention those Capital One commercials), Fallon recently landed on the list of Ask Men’s Most Influential Men of 2011, where he ranked as #35.
