Kal Penn Will Have A New Show Set In The U.N.

Kal Penn New Politics Comedy Pilot NBC

Kal Penn, who just up until recently was actually working in politics, is bringing a new single camera comedy to NBC set in the U.N.!

Not only that, but he will have a role as well — as an assistant to the U.S. ambassador!

Penn told Mike Fleming in an interview earlier this month that “the shows I’ve most loved in the last couple of years were NBC’ 30 Rock and The Office”, both workplace comedies. And NBC “was the network we felt most in sync from sensibility perspective,” Spilo told me. Penn and Spilo met with the TV networks last year when Penn took a break from his job as White House associate director in the Office of Public Engagement to film the upcoming A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.

It sounds great, Kal!

Not only that, but it sounds like you'll have plenty of spot on material for the show from your previous work as that associate director at the White House!

They're looking at a next fall debut! Good luck!
