In a competitive situation, NBC has landed a single-camera comedy starring and executive produced by Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, with a script commitment plus penalty. The project hails from writer Ben Shelton (Candy Jar), Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Universal Television.

Written by Shelton, who is proficient in ASL, the Untitled Marlee Matlin Project is set in the cutthroat, fast-paced world of sign language interpreting. The workplace comedy centers around a medium-sized interpreting agency in Los Angeles managed by DJ (Matlin), who’s both overextended and overconfident.
