Kenan Thompson Family Comedy Gets Pilot Order at NBC

NBC has picked up two new comedy pilots, the Kenan Thompson-led single-cam “Saving Kenan” and “Like Magic” from “Superstore” duo Bridget Kyle and Vicky Luu.

“Saving Kenan” stars Thompson as a newly-widowed dad determined to be everything for his kids while begrudgingly letting his persistent father-in-law become more involved in their lives. The longtime “Saturday Night Live” star also serves as an executive producer on the project.

The pilot is written and executive produced by Jackie Clarke. “SNL’s” Lorne Michaels serves as executive producer alongside Andrew Singer, head of television for Michaels’ Broadway Video. Universal Television is the studio.
