Netflix has ventured into multicam sitcom waters again with MERRY HAPPY WHATEVER a holiday themed comedy with an eight episode order for the first Christmas season (potential new seasons would follow other holidays).

CBS also has a pilot for THE UNICORN which, inspired by a true story, follows a widower who is eager to move on from the most difficult year of his life, only to realize he’s utterly unprepared to raise his two daughters on his own and equally unprepared for the dating world — where, to his shock, he’s suddenly a hot commodity. Their third new multicam sitcom pilot is for OUR HOUSE following a devoted mom and dad who are committed to raising their children with the love and support the mom never got as a kid but discover how difficult that is with her insane parents and siblings back in the picture.

  1. You usually can't go wrong with comedies centered around family, kids, holidays.
    In 'Merry Happy Whatever' you already have the comic situation in the title. Shall I say Merry Christmas, or Happy Christmas? I tend to go for the broader,more general greeting of Happy Holidays,unless I feel people will get offended by it.

  2. So many to choose from today! I have loved Katey Sagal ever since her Married With Children days, so Nana would be my first pick out of all of these. Merry Happy Whatever sounds delightful as well.
