The multicamera comedy is described as young ensemble vehicle that is loosely based on Mulaney's life.

The Universal Television entry hails from Michaels' Broadway Video shingle and 3 Arts and, should it go to series, would join Up All Night at the network -- should the sophomore comedy's upcoming reboot prove successful.

The untitled comedy was one of a handful of projects Michaels' Broadway video had in development this season, including entries starring Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson and Seth Meyers
