Expanding his present relationship with the network, late night host Jimmy Fallon sold three comedy scripts to NBC from his company Holiday Road via Universal Television. Fallon will executive produce the series with Amy Ozols, writer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  The writers of all three projects hail from Fallon's own show or his former show, NBC's Saturday Night Live. 
  • One project is Fat Rob, about a former rap star who is balancing being famous and being a good father. Jeremy Bronson is on board with this project.
  • DILFs is about 30-something dads coping with not being grown up enough to parent.  Charlie Grandy (The Office) is behind this project.
  • Rick is the third concept about a loveable doofus who is a stepdad to a guy the same age as him. Gerard Bradford is working on this script.
On NBC's established comedy The Office, character Nellie Bertram returns to Dunder Miflin when Catherine Tate rejoins the cast. Tate will reprise her role in the latter half of the current season after she's hired by friend and Chairman Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates).
