Martin Short could be back on TV in new sitcom
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Martin Short could be back in the weekly TV business with his former "Saturday Night Live" boss, Lorne Michaels.
Short says he's waiting to hear whether NBC will pick up a comedy pilot produced by Michaels as a series next season.
The untitled sitcom stars "SNL" writer John Mulaney and is loosely based on Mulaney's life.
Short plays a quiz show host who uses jokes written by Mulaney's character.
The former "SNL" cast member says Elliott Gould is also in the cast.
NBC and other networks will announce their lineups for 2013-14 season next month.
Short and Michaels were paired Tuesday to discuss Michaels' career at a Hollywood Radio & Television Society event in Beverly Hills.
