The untitled single-camera sitcom hails from studio Universal Television and Wilmore’s own production company, Wilmore Films. Wilmore and Hughes will write and executive produce together; Hughes will star.
The project focuses on character London Jones (Hughes), who after getting dumped by her boyfriend in England, comes to America to find success, herself, and maybe even love, according to NBC.
In general, a “put pilot” practically guarantees a show will be picked up to series, as by the nature of the agreement the pilot must air as either a special or a series. Should the network, NBC in the case, decide not to air it in any capacity, the network will have to pay substantial money to the studio. Of course, in this case, the studio is also owned by NBC.
