Donald Glover Developing Show for NBC

Donald Glover

Donald Glover looks to be adding some extracurricular homework outside of Greendale Community College. The "Community" star, who plays former high school quarterback-turned-air conditioning repair savant Troy Barnes, is developing a new show for NBC with "30 Rock" co-executive producer Matt Hubbard. Glover worked as a writer on "30 Rock" along with Hubbard before moving in front of the camera. The new sitcom, however, will be developed and tagged as a starring vehicle for Glover. NBC is said to be committed to the project, and is close to sealing a deal for a pilot, which would be loosely based on Glover's life.

The actor, comedian, rapper (as Childish Gambino), writer is still signed on for a fourth season of "Community," which returns to NBC on Friday, October 19.
