NBC Developing Lesbian Sitcom with Producer Ellen DeGeneres

NBC is working with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres to bring a new sitcom to television led by a lesbian main character.

The untitled project, written/exec produced by openly gay comedy scribe Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), centers on a lesbian and her straight male best friend who get pregnant just as he meets and marries the love of his life….NBC has a tradition with gay-themed comedies, most notably Will & Grace, and launched two half-hour series centered on gay men the last two seasons with The New Normal and Sean Saves The World.

DeGeneres’ own sitcom, Ellen, famously allowed her character to “come out” in the 1997 episode called Puppy.
