NBC has reportedly picked up a comedy pilot from Saturday Night Live's executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Deadline says that the untitled project has been written by Emily Spivey, who previously worked on Saturday Night Live and now produces Parks & Recreation.

The show is said to be an "irreverent" look at parenthood through the eyes of a working mother who never thought she would have children. Her stay-at-home husband and opinionated parents are also expected to feature in the series.

Meanwhile, NBC also ordered a pilot called Bent from Scrubs and Dirty Sexy Money producer Ted Quill. The show focuses on a "type A" single mother who tries not to fall for the "surfer dude" contractor she hires to redecorate her kitchen.

NBC is currently developing a number of new comedies including a show set at a theme park and projects from Chelsea Handler and Whitney Cummings.
