NBC Orders Script For Peter Pan Sitcom

NBC apparently can’t get enough pixie dust.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that in addition to its live-action Peter Pan musical, the network also has a script commitment for Wendy and Peter, a modern-day retelling of the Wendy/Peter love story — done as a sitcom.

The show will be a single-camera workplace/romantic comedy told from the perspective of Wendy. EW reports it will center “on a woman hoping to find love with a real man, but who finds herself falling for Peter, a guy who’s just not quite ready to grow up.” No word on whether either character will ever fly to the break room for coffee or have a dastardly boss named Mr. Hook.

The series is said to be inspired by the life of writer and executive producer Marisa Coughlan. Sitcom vets Will McCormack (Will & Grace) and Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) will also executive produce. This announcement follows the debut of another McCormack/Jones romantic comedy on NBC — A to Z.
