“I’ve sort of been thinking - correct me if I’m wrong - but most of the stuff Britain has won gold medals in over the last few years have involved sitting down; sailing, rowing, cycling. We did at Sochi, the skeleton where she’s lying down - it’s even better! You know, I don’t like to lie down at that speed, but I can lie there and reflect on the idea that…”

ABC’s untitled City Mayor comedy pilot, from Jeremy Bronson (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) and Hamilton co-star Daveed Diggs, has set Search Party‘s Brandon Micheal Hall to play the lead. The casting was done in conjunction with the formal pilot green light for the single-camera comedy yesterday as the project had a cast-contingent pilot production commitment, contingent on casting the lead role.

This is awesome news. Official call for a pilot and the lead immediately cast; now cross your fingers it’s picked up in May!

Its amazing how everything has worked out

At the same time as the 40th Anniversary of Saturday Night Live

Both The Tonight Show and Late Night are hosted by alumni and run by the same boss

Also…Tina Fey promoted Bossypants and celebrated the end of 30 Rock on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Amy Poehler promoted Yes Please and will be celebrating the end of Parks and Recreation on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Seth got Late Night at just the right time and Jimmy got The Tonight Show at just the right time. Its amazing.

ABC Nabs Rapper Mayor Comedy From Jeremy Bronson, Daveed Diggs & Bluegrass FanFare With Big Commitment

In a highly competitive situation, ABC has given a cast-contingent pilot production commitment to a single-camera comedy about a hip-hop artist-turned-mayor from writer Jeremy Bronson (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), Hamilton co-star Daveed Diggs and Jamie Tarses, Scott Stuber & Dylan Clark’s Bluegrass FanFare. ABC Studios, where Bronson and the recently launched Bluegrass FanFare are under overall deals, is the studio.

Written and executive produced by Bronson, the untitled City Mayor Project centers on a struggling hip-hop artist who runs for mayor to promote his mixtape – and wins.

Diggs executive produces. The rapper-actor, who won a Tony for playing Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway smash Hamilton, is NOT attached to act in the project, which also is executive produced by Tarses, Stuber and Clark via Bluegrass FanFare. James Griffiths, who directed the pilot for the ABC/ABC Studios comedy series Black-ish, is attached to direct and executive produce.

While I took a nap, D adds “Executive Producer of an ABC show” to his resume. There’s a metaphor here.

TROYE SIVAN

Age: 20

Based: Perth, Australia

What you should know: Few pop acts in recent memory have had the viral success of this introspective Australian singer, who got his start on YouTube when he was 13, where he has amassed 3.8 million subscribers and 230 million views since 2007. Sivan, who is openly gay and incorporates LGBT themes into his videos, received his biggest endorsement yet from Taylor Swift last fall, when she tweeted and posted about his Wild EP on Instagram. He has since made his late-night debut performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and released his debut album, Blue Neighbourhood, which he will support on a nearly sold-out U.S. tour this winter.

He immediately put in his cassette of Moving Pictures’ “Never” and recreated the legendary moves from his breakout role in 1984’s Footloose.

But, of course, first he took a drag of his cigarette…

Then, he took it all off.

Took it all off and danced with it, that is.

And because one song isn’t enough, he then switched over to the final number: “Footloose”!
