Comedian John Mulaney‘s self-titled sitcom Mulaney, after being passed on by NBC, has now found its way to Fox. This show not only is being allowed to keep alive at another network, but is retaining its high profile cast around Mulaney that features the likes of Martin Short and Elliot Gould as well as SNL‘s Nasim Pedrad, very funny stand-up comedian Seaton Smith, and Zack Pearlman from The Inbetweeners.
After numerous occasions at which Mulaney‘s fate seemingly hung in the balance, the very first preview was unveiled (at minute 28 of this clip) during John Mulaney’s appearance last night on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The sitcom, following “an up-and-coming comedian” named (you guessed it) “John Mulaney” who writes for a self-centered veteran comedian played by Martin Short, is one of the most anticipated shows on Fox’s upcoming slate.
You should also note that in a TV world increasingly populated by single camera shows, Mulaney could potentially be the next great multi-cam sitcom.
