VARIETY is reporting that NBC has ordered a pilot for a sitcom starring former CBS RADIO Talk KLSX (now Top 40 KAMP)/LOS ANGELES morning host ADAM CAROLLA. The show, with the radio personality as a contractor picking up the pieces after his wife leaves him, is another run at a sitcom for CAROLLA, whose pilot "ACE IN THE HOLE" was not picked up by CBS after a pilot was shot last year.
CAROLLA's former KROQ/LOS ANGELES co-hort and "THE MAN SHOW"/"CRANK YANKERS" co-creator JIMMY KIMMEL and former "MAN SHOW" co-creator-producer DANIEL KELLISON are among the producers of the show, along with KEVIN HENCH (co-host of a sports podcast distributed by CAROLLA's podcasting company and co-writer of CAROLLA's movie "THE HAMMER"), former network executives GAIL BERMAN and LLOYD BRAUN, "30 ROCK" producer JON POLLACK, and JAMES DIXON.
