NBC has handed a hefty pilot-production commitment to “Guess Who Died,” a single-camera comedy from Norman Lear and Peter Tolan.

The series will take an irreverent look at the ups and downs of all stages in life, particularly those that come in one’s latter years. “Guess Who Died” hails from Sony Pictures Television Studio, The Cloudland Company and Act III Productions.

Legendary television producer Lear is executive producing with “Rescue Me” co-creator Tolan, and the pair are penning the pilot. Brent Miller is also executive producing.

Lear is behind such classic sitcoms as “All in the Family,” “Sanford and Son,” “One Day at a Time” and “The Jeffersons.”

He is also an executive producer on the Netflix reboot of “One Day at Time,” which recently picked up a second season.
