NBC Wants a Variety Show Hosted by Maya Rudolph
Deadline reports that NBC will air the show's pilot as a special following the Winter Olympics in February. If that's successful, it would be picked up as a full series. Nearly everyone is familiar with Rudolph's sketch comedy chops, having spent seven years on Saturday Night Live. But she can also sing, as well, and did so frequently on the SNL; Rudolph's mother was the soul singer Minnie Riperton.
