‘Book Of Mormon’ Star Andrew Rannells to Star in NBC’s Ryan Murphy/Ali Adler Comedy

In what would be his first major series gig, The Book Of Mormon star Andrew Rannells has been signed in a joint 20th Century Fox TV-NBC talent holding deal with the intention for him to play one of the 3 leads in the NBC/20th TV comedy from Ryan Murphy and Allison Adler. The single-camera project, co-written by Murphy and Adler and to be directed by Murphy, is described as a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family. It has not been greenlighted to pilot yet but is fully expected to. NBC landed the pitch in a three-way bidding war with penalty said to be bigger than any other commitment for a comedy project this season.
