Guess Who Died - Norman Lear Comedy Passed by NBC

Share on Reddit

Norman Lear’s eight-year journey to get his retirement village comedy Guess Who Died to the small screen has hit another snag. NBC has passed on the single-camera pilot from Lear and Peter Tolan.

The move was somewhat surprising. While Guess Who Died flew largely under the radar during pilot season, NBC went aggressively after the project last summer. The script was a favorite of the network’s top brass who only a couple of weeks ago flew 95-year-old Lear in by helicopter to the company’s retreat where they praised the pilot, I hear.

I hear there has been incoming outside interest in Guess Who Died in the past few weeks. For instance, I hear there is excitement about the project at YouTube Red, though they have not seen the pilot yet as it just got the pass at NBC.

Guess Who Died stars Hector Elizondo, Holland Taylor, Christopher Lloyd, Beth Lacke and Adrian Martinez. Elizondo already has a deal to reprise his role in the Last Man Standing revival on Fox. His casting is in second position to Guess Who Died which has until June 30 to find a new home before the cast’s options expire.
