NBC has given a 13-episode series commitment order to an untitled comedy from Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Michael Schur, one of the most respected and talented writer-showrunners in television today. Details are being kept as top secret for now. Stay tuned for more.

NBC also announced another comedy project. Emmy Award winners and producing partners Tina Fey and Robert Carlock are returning to NBC with a pilot production order for an untitled comedy written by Emmy winner Tracey Wigfield.
