NBC to Develop Comedy ‘All Together Now’ From Bradley Whitford

The “West Wing” and “Handmaid’s Tale” alum may star in new series as well

NBC has given a put pilot commitment to a new church choir comedy, “All Together Now,” from executive producer Bradley Whitford. The “West Wing” and “Handmaid’s Tale” alum may also star in the series.

“All Together Now” is a single-camera comedy about a rural church choir that gets the gift it never thought it needed when a salty, Ivy league professor becomes its director, according to the official logline from NBC. 

Lesley Wake Webster writes and executive produces, as will Jason Winer and Jon Radler, in addition to Whitford. The project comes from 20th Century Fox Television.

In other news from the Peacock Network Tuesday, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fans can look forward to a January premiere date — at least, according to star Terry Crews, who took to Instagram Live to tell “Nine-Nine” fans to expect Season 6 of the Dan Goor-created series to hit NBC in January.

While NBC declined TheWrap‘s request for comment on the Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher-led comedy’s sixth season premiere date, an individual with knowledge of the decision told TheWrap that an announcement on the series’ NBC debut is coming soon. So we’ll find out soon if Crews is right.
