Kenan Thompson Comedy In The Works At NBC

Kenan Thompson could become the next “Saturday Night Live” star to command his own comedy at NBC.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels is working with Thompson on a scripted single-camera series that Thompson would write, star in and executive produce.

The 34-year-old actor would play a married New Yorker called Kenan Monroe who gives up his city life to move in with his in-laws in the suburbs. Presumably, generational comedy would ensue from there.

(Hearing that he’ll once again play a character named Kenan will undoubtedly make fans of Thompson’s ’90s Nickelodeon show hope that Kel Mitchell will make an appearance. Or is that just us?)
