Sarah Silverman NBCSarah Silverman is one step closer to being NBC's newest star. According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC has ordered her untitled comedy project to pilot.

The show is loosely based on Silverman's life. She'll star as a woman who is adjusting to single life after her decade-long relationship ends.

The comic co-wrote the project with her 'Sarah Silverman Program' cohorts Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder. She'll also serve as executive producer with Ron Howard, Sterling, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

NBC bought the script in August following an intense bidding war.

Other pilots in development at NBC include 'Beautiful People,' 'Isabel' and Save Me. Those projects are now casting.

Nope, I don't think she is a good fit. Sarah is funny. NBC seems to have problems with funny recently. And she isn't family friendly which I like which is another reason why I wonder NBC would want her. They don't do edgy funny. They do safe funny.
