Comedian Sarah Silverman has gotten the green light. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the prettiest girl with the ugliest mouth in the world recently got the go-ahead from NBC for a pilot about Silverman readjusting to single life following the break-up of a long relationship. Of course, the comedy series is loosely based on Silverman’s own life. (Did someone say Jimmy Kimmel?)
The 40-year-old Silverman will co-write the series with Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder, who also worked with her on her Comedy Central series, “The Sarah Silverman Program.” Executive producers on the comedy include Ron Howard, Silverman, Sterling, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.
