That means he won’t be forced to ham it up in a multi-camera sitcom. Instead, NBC has purchased a single-camera comedy focusing on his life as a lazy guy married to a strong woman who are raising four kids in a small New York City apartment. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig for a set builder.
Jim Gaffigan is a brilliant comedian, so it’s nice to see NBC recognize a good thing when they see it. Though I sincerely doubt it will take on any dark themes, this move seems to be a result of the success FX has had with Louie. Or perhaps random guests from Chelsea Lately ran out of show ideas.
