Stand-up comedian Dane Cook is working on a new comedy show at NBC. The network signed Cook for a deal for a half-hour comedy show for the network's next season lineup. This will mark the comedian's first major role on national TV.
The 39-year old-comedian-actor will headline the sitcom, but will also be part of the development through his own production company Superfinger Entertainment. NBC aims for a fall 2012 debut of the still untitled program. Cook will join his other contemporaries like Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman at the peacock network.
