NBC Orders Comedy Pilot People Are Talking, Starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar

People Are Talking

NBC has ordered its first new comedy series for fall: People Are Talking, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Meaghan Rath, Tone Bell and Bresha Webb.

The show comes from executive producer Will Packer (Ride Along) and director Pam Fryman (How I Met Your Mother). According to NBC, the “unabashed new comedy” is “about two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything. From topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star, nothing is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken foursome.”

DJ Nash iswriter and executive producer. People Are Talking is produced by Universal Television and Will Packer Productions.

People Are Talking joins the new NBC dramas Chicago Med, Heartbreaker and Blindspot on next season’s schedule. NBC needs new comedies; so far it has no half-hours greenlighted for next year (although Undateable is expected to return).
