Broderick, Michaels Team Up for NBC Sitcom

Matthew Broderick is joining forces with Lorne Michaels. According to the trades, the actor will star in an NBC sitcom exec produced by Michaels and Marci Klein.

Beach Lane sees Broderick as a celebrity author brought in by an irresponsible millionaire to run his struggling small-town Hamptons newspaper.

Paul Simms wrote the script and will exec produce, along with Michaels and Klein.

Beach Lane would be Broderick’s first TV series (his late father, of course, was the patriarch on the 1970s drama series Family while Broderick’s wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, starred in a little HBO series called Sex and the City once upon a time).

Broderick has, however, guested on Michaels’ 30 Rock and will be seen on NBC’s upcoming reality entry Who Do You Think You Are.
