New Sarah Silverman Project May Head to TV

Sarah Silverman’s been pretty busy in the last few years. She’s starred in her own show, The Sarah Silverman Program, wrote a memoir titled The Bedwetter, and recently shared with us her favorite break-up songs. It turns out she’s been doing a lot of writing with two of her colleagues from her Comedy Central show, and NBC has ordered a pilot for a series loosely based on her life.

The show is still untitled, but it’ll star Silverman "as a woman readjusting to the single life after a decade-long live-in relationship," according to Deadline. If you’re worried this will turn into another Whitney (please speak up if you’re a Whitney fan, because I have never met such a person), be relieved that it’s not a traditional multi-camera sitcom filmed before an audience; Silverman is going the 30 Rock/Parks & Rec single-camera route.

She’s got some big players on her team as well: Imagine Entertainment’s Ron Howard and Brian Grazer join Silverman as executive producers. Now, who will play the Jimmy Kimmel character?
