Carol Burnett To Star In New Sitcom - Yay

Carol Burnett, a legend when it comes to comedy, has never starred in a sitcom. She has made plenty of guest appearances over the years and hosted a variety show, The Carol Burnett Show, for 11 seasons, but never headlined a sitcom — until now.

Deadline reports that Burnett is in talks to do a multi-camera comedy for ABC with a commitment which guarantees that a pilot will be shot, a move that is only used for high-profile projects. The unnamed project will be written and produced by Michael Saltzman and executive produced by Amy Poehler. Saltzman has a history of multi-camera sitcoms, including Murphy Brown and The Naked Truth, before moving on to shows like Mad Men, Hell on Wheels, and Halt and Catch Fire. Working with Burnett will be dream for Saltzman.
