NBC has just given a put pilot commitment to a project written and executive produced by Pam Veasey (“Ringer,” “CSI: NY”), pictured, a representative from producer, Warner Bros. Television, told TheWrap.
From Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with WBTV, the half-hour comedy currently goes by the very long “The Bass Player, His Neighbors, Their Landlord & Their Lovers.”
It follows three guys and two women in their 20s who live in a brownstone in 2014 in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C., as they navigate relationships and careers in pursuit of love, sex, money and power. What these friends don’t know is that in 2036, one of them will become the 50th President of the United States while the rest are unknowingly part of the vetting process of the future president.
Under the deal, NBC can owe the producers a penalty fee if the portrait of a young president pilot doesn’t get produced.
Bruckheimer’s production company also recently landed a development deal for one-hour drama “Oasis” at CBS, which follows the inhabitants of a new self-sustaining perfect community discover there may be danger and mystery to the greater purpose of this Oasis. It also recently landed a script deal at ABC for comedy “Bagel Nation” about a Lebanese father who buys a Jewish deli, even though he’s not Jewish.
