NBC to Develop About a Boy Sitcom

by at . Comments

NBC has given Jason Katims permission to make us cry every week once again.

The Friday Night Lights and Parenthood producer will helm that network's pilot for About a Boy, which is based on a novel and Hugh Grant movie by the same name.

The single-camera sitcom will tell the tale of an immature rich man and the child who moves in next door.
