NBC Signs for Steve Carell Mailman Comedy
The Peacock has bought a half-hour, single-camera project from the actor-comedian based on his early days working as a mail carrier in Littleton, Massachusetts. Carell will write the comedy, tentatively titled The Post-Graduate Project. It is described as a sweet and nostalgic take on the period of Carell’s early life as a mail carrier and centers on a small-town post office frequented by a quirky but tight-knit group of local twentysomethings.
Sounds like a perfect fit for NBC. Thursday nights currently explore a paper company, a T.V. show, a call center in India, and Parks and Recreation department. Stuff a post office in there and we'll have a workplace comedy block that'll surely make you realize how depressing your job is.
