Adam Levine developing NBC sitcom about karaoke

After a full season of working overtime to wring indulgent laughs out of amateur singing on The Voice, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine—easily the Adam Levine of comedy—will now do the same with a scripted sitcom. Levine will executive produce an ensemble show for NBC that’s set in a karaoke bar, where the everyday lives and loves of a group of people will occasionally be interrupted by impromptu song. Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher, Walk Hard) is attached to direct from a script by Gene Hong (The Goode Family), a friend and former roommate of Levine’s whose relationship—in either an example of life providing perfect marketing synergy, or a publicist-concocted lie—reportedly began in a karaoke bar. Anyway, apparently all of the networks were interested in their show, and why not? It sounds like the perfect way to mock Glee while also copping some of its success.
