NEXT CALLER (A.K.A. NEXT CALLER PLEASE) (NBC) - The Dane Cook/Collette Wolfe single-camera comedy, about a mismatched duo - she's spunky and fiercely intelligent, he's disheveled and purposefully detached - who host a relationship call-in show in New York City, is the latest pilot to land a series commitment at the Peacock. Said order is reportedly for six episodes. Stephen Falk is behind the Lionsgate Television-based half-hour, which was directed by Marc Buckland. Joy Osmanski also stars as the producer of said program with Ryan Devlin as a Ryan Seacrest-esque top-40 DJ-slash-TV host who also works at the station. (Deadline.com)
