Emeril gets a sitcom

Kat Kinsman | Feb 26, 2001 10:03 PM

From USA Today:

"NBC hopes Emeril will sizzle in sitcom Chef Emeril Lagasse has made lots of fans in recent years cooking things up on cable's Food Network, where he just taped his 1,000th show, and appearing weekly on ABC's Good Morning America.

Now NBC thinks a family sitcom, Emeril, starring Lagasse as a TV chef with a family, might work.

The network has ordered a pilot from Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth Thomason.

Joy Behar, a member of ABC's The View, is being eyed as Lagasse's pushy producer in a show described as Home Improvement meets Seinfeld."

Just wanted to share.
