Steven Weber lands a sitcom at NBC
Steven Weber's a really good actor, and NBC must like him a lot. He's going to star in a new sitcom for the network called Zip.
The comedy is about a guy named Trip Stringer (only on TV can someone have a name like that) who is broke and lives in Beverly Hills and always tries to come up with get rich quick schemes with the help of friends. Hopefully this won't be another Knights of Prosperity.
NBC must really have faith in Weber, because they already passed on this show once last year when it was filmed as a pilot (with a different cast). Looks like Ben Silverman really wanted to do the show and it got the green light once Weber was connected. Weber also starred in two other NBC sitcoms, Wings and Cursed (which later became The Weber Show). He really should have been nominated for a supporting actor Emmy last season for Studio 60, so it's good to see that he's going to be back on TV every week in a sitcom (he currently has a role on ABC's Brothers & Sisters).
