Dane CookLadies and Gentlemen, the Dane Cook redemption tour is in full-force.

According to Deadline, 2005's hottest comic has signed a deal with NBC to star in his own comedy on the network. The half-hour project is slated for next fall. Comedian Sarah Silverman already has a comedy in the works for NBC in 2012, and standup Whitney Cummings' 'Whitney' debuted on the network last week to solid ratings.

Cook appeared in an episode of the most recent season of 'Louie,' where he and star Louis C.K. addressed their notorious beef -- Cook was accused of stealing several bits from C.K. and using them in his own act. Watch the clip below.

Cook has three feature films due out soon, including 'Answers to Nothing,' 'Detention' and 'Guns, Girls & Gambling.'

Who keeps putting this guy in front of a camera? Why for heavens sake?+ I have seen cardboard cutouts with more depth.
