Ellen DeGeneres and Liz Feldman will be developing a lesbian sitcom for NBC.

Written by Feldman, the sitcom will focus on a lesbian who gets pregnant with her straight male best friend just as he meets the love of his life and plans on getting married. Feldman will executive produce alongside DeGeneres and her A Very Good Production banner president, Jeff Kleeman. 

Feldman previously worked on DeGeneres' hit talk show for two years and also wrote for her first Oscar hosting gig, which DeGeneres will return to this year. She currently writes on 2 Broke Girls

NBC has a history with developing gay-themed comedies with most famously Will & Grace. Last year, they developed The New Normal which was canceled and are currently airing the Sean Hayes starring Sean Saves the World about a gay divorced father who works on balancing his work and parenting when his 14 year old daughter moves in.
