Deadline says that the show, Life Is Good, has been written by Unhitched scribes Chris Pappas and Mike Bernier.
Scot Armstrong, who has penned scripts for The Hangover 2, School For Scoundrels and Starsky & Hutch, is also working on the project.
The show focuses on a suburban husband and father called Andy who is shocked when he discovers that he has a 19-year-old mixed-race son called Dru.
Andy is immediately thrilled to hear about his new son but Dru is reportedly less comfortable with the relationship.
NBC is already developing comedies with Whitney Cummings, Jack Black, Big Bang Theory writer Rob Cohen and New Adventures Of Old Christine creator Kari Lizer.
