Comedian Gabrielle Dennis, who can currently be seen on A Black Lady Sketch Show, has been tapped to star in a new pilot for NBC, Someone Out There.
The pilot – which was created by Matt Hubbard, Josh Siegal, Dylan Morgan, and is based off the Spanish format Pequeñas Coincidencias – follows “two set-in-their-ways adults, Derek and Chloe (Dennis), who are challenged by very unexpected strangers to become the best versions of themselves in order to find love and possibly each other.”
Dennis’ character, Chloe, “is a self-made, no-nonsense bridal boutique owner and dressmaker who always has known she’ll need to outwork everyone around her in order to succeed. But in addition to other goals, Chloe has just added one more thing: someone to open her heart to.”
If the pilot is picked up, it would most likely be slated for NBC’s 2021 fall season.
