Adam Levine Sells Autobiographical Comedy To NBC

NBC has purchased a new semi-autobiographical sitcom created by The Voice judge Adam Levine and his friend Gene Hong.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the deal comes three months after Levine signed a one-year first-look development pact with the network and managing/producing partner Jordan Feldstein from 222 Productions.

"It would be impossible to quantify Adam's influence and importance to the success of The Voice," Paul Telegdy said, president of alternative and late night programming for NBC Entertainment.

"Given those enormous contributions, we're very anxious to work with him and Jordan to see what future shows they develop that can find a home here at NBC."

Universal Television and 222 Productions will produce the new comedy, which is scheduled to go into production sometime later this year.
