Meanwhile, another power duo is teaming up for a comedy at the peacock: Don Cheadle, who received an Oscar nomination for his work on 'Hotel Rwanda,' will join 'Boondocks' creator Aaron McGruder for a project about brothers who run a security company.

Don CheadleCheadle is no stranger to comedy, having previously appeared in the 'Ocean's Eleven' series of blockbusters; this time he will also be co-executive producing along with McGruder, who will act as lead writer.

Whether either series will feature trampolines, of course, has yet to be announced. But don't count it out just yet; after all, based on NBC's ratings so far this fall, just about anything has to be worth a try.
