NBC has ordered a pilot about an unplanned pregnancy that unites a white and Latino family.

"Welcome to the Family," a single-camera comedy from Sony Pictures Television, is written and executive produced by "Rules of Engagement" veteran Mike Sikowitz.

Pregnancy-based sitcoms are becoming a thing at NBC, which Tuesday ordered "Girlfriend in a Coma" about a woman who awakens from a coma to discover she has a teenage daughter. A surrogate pregnancy is also at the heart of this season's Ryan Murphy sitcom "The New Normal."
