NBC’s given pilot orders to shows from executive producers Amy Poehler and Katherine Heigl. Poehler, the Golden Globe-winning star of Parks and Recreation, is executive producing an untitled series along with Dave Becky, Jon Fener and Josh Bycel. The comedy series will star Natasha Lyonne and is about a “young woman who’s trying to find herself, but in the meantime she’s working as the aide to a group of elderly people.”
Katherine Heigl will star in and executive produce State of Affairs, a dramatic series from writer/director Joe Carnahan. The drama will find Heigl playing a “key CIA attaché who counsels the president on high-stakes incidents around the world. She balances her intense political responsibilities with a complicated personal life.”
There’s no word yet on when NBC expects either show to air.
