Oh Gawd: SNL’s Kenan Thompson’s Getting His Own Dayum Show On NBC!!

Lorne Michaels is behind it so maybe it’ll be better than most of us would expect?!?!

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

Kenan Thompson, who has been with the sketch comedy series since 2003, is attached to write, star in and executive produce an untitled comedy, which has received a script commitment from the network.

The single-camera comedy would star Thompson as Kenan Monroe, a guy who gives up his New York life and moves to his in-laws’ house in the suburbs, where he must contend with three generations of problems.

Michaels will executive produce through his Broadway Video banner and Universal Television, marking the second project he has set up this development season. Thompson started his career on the scripted side, with roles on The Steve Harvey Show, Sister, Sister and The Parkers, before co-starring on Nickelodeon’s Kenan & Kel.

He continues to be a featured performer on SNL, with sketches including “What’s Up With That” and impersonations including Whoopi Goldberg, Charles Barkley and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Did he get funny enough to have his own show all of a sudden??
