Perhaps in response to the ongoing call for diversity at NBC, the network has ordered a presentation for a new comedy starring and created by up-and-coming comic Jerrod Carmichael.
The show will be based on Carmichael's comedy and life as "a consummate optimist who is eager to take on the world, but is too busy taking on everyone and everything in his small corner of it," says Deadline.
Carmichael is a relatively new face, having written and appeared in a few projects including Fox's The Goodwin Games, and as a consulting writer on Adult Swim's Loiter Squad.
