Four More Comedies Make the Cut on NBC's 2011-12 Roster
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has ordered four more comedy pilots to series, likely completing its freshman class for the 2011-12 season.

Half-hours "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," "Free Agents," "Bent" and "Best Friends Forever" will join previous pickups "Up All Night" and "Whitney" on the comedy front.

Laura Prepon stars in "Chelsea," based on Chelsea Handler's bestselling book of the same name about her twentysomething adventures. Angel Laketa Moore, Jo Koy, Lauren Lapkus, Lenny Clarke, Mark Povinelli and Natalie Morales also star in the Warner Bros. Television-based project, from writers Dottie Zicklin and Julie Ann Larson.

"Free Agents," also from Warner Bros. Television, explores the attraction between two quirky PR executives (Hank Azaria, Kathryn Hahn) who are both on the rebound. John Enbom penned the half-hour, which is based on the U.K. series of the same name. Al Madrigal, Anthony Head, Joe Lo Truglio, Mo Mandel and Natasha Leggero co-star.

"Bent" stars Amanda Peet as a divorced single mother and revolves around her burgeoning relationship with a contractor (David Walton) she hires to re-do her kitchen. Tad Quill is behind the project, which comes from Universal Media Studios and also stars Jeffrey Tambor, Joey King and Margo Harshman.

And finally, Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham topline "Best Friends Forever," about a woman who moves back in with her best friend only to find out he's now living with her boyfriend. The duo also penned the project, which is produced by Universal Media Studios.

Not moving forward are comedy pilots "Brave New World," "Family Practice," "Help Wanted," "I Hate That I Love You," "Lovelives" and "My Life as an Experiment."
