NBC has picked up Mark-Paul Gosselaar sitcom “People Are Talking” to series.

The self-described “unabashed” comedy follows two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. The show comes from producer Will Packer (“Ride Along”) and director Pam Fryman (“How I Met Your Mother”).

As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything, according to NBC’s official description. 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.

“People Are Talking” also stars Meaghan Rath, Tone Bell and Bresha Webb.

DJ Nash serves as writer and executive producer on the project Packer and director Fryman (pilot) also executive produce.

“People Are Talking” is produced by Universal Television and Will Packer Productions.
