NBC Orders Ellen DeGeneres-Produced Sitcom Pilot w/ Lesbian Lead

NBC's primetime lineup may be welcoming a new lead gay character to its lineup! 

Ellen DeGeneres's A Very Good Production shingle just got the greenlight to shoot a lesbian-led pilot, One Big Happy, from writer Liz Feldman (pictured, left).

Deadline reports:

NBC has given a pilot order to a multi-camera comedy executive produced by DeGeneres. The project, titled One Big Happy, is written/exec produced by openly gay comedy scribe Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls). In it, a gay (woman) and straight (man) best friends decide to have a baby together, but things get complicated when the man finds the love of their life.

Hmm...he finds the love of their life? Is the woman they fall for bisexual? Are we reading that wrong? Curious. 

In any case, let's hope it's good and that it makes its way to our television screens!

Haha "Their" was the first thing that jumped out at me. I was thinking to myself, the correct word is "his"... I sure hope this was in reference to them because the Editor in me cringed! 

I have complete faith in Ellen and am confident she will produce something of quality for the masses!

oh child America is so not ready for a menage a trois open relationship. I hope Ellen steers this in a direction that works
