LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Jimmy Fallon’s comedy pilot “Guys With Kids” has been given the go-ahead by NBC with a 13-episode season order.
The multi-camera comedy stars Zach Cregger, Jesse Branford and Anthony Anderson as three thirty-something men who “enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact they haven’t grown up themselves.”
“Sopranos” alum Jamie Lynn Sigler, “The Cosby Show” alum Tempestt Bledsoe and Sara Rue also star.
“Late Night” funnyman Fallon is producing, along with Charlie Grandy, who penned the pilot, Amy Ozols, Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz.
Earlier Wednesday, the network also gave a series order to the Dick Wolf drama “Chicago Fire,” and also renewed Wolf’s “Law & Order: SVU” for a 14th season. On Monday, NBC gave the full-season go-ahead to the White House comedy “1600 Penn” starring Bill Pullman, as well as “Animal Practice,” a comedy starring Justin Kirk (“Weeds”) as a “House”-like veterinarian who loves animals even if he isn’t crazy about their owners.
