NBC Developing Family Workplace Comedy ‘Save The Deli’ Based On Book From Lauren Bachelis & Milo Ventimiglia

  • Deadline
NBC has put in development multi-camera comedy Save the Deli, based on David Sax’s book of the same name, from writer Lauren Bachelis (Single By 30), This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia and Russ Cundiff’s Divide Pictures and 20th Century Fox TV, where Divide is under a deal.

Written by Bachelis, Save the Deli is a family workplace comedy centering on a 30-year-old woman, who much to the shock of her family, friends and mostly herself, becomes the new owner of her Chicago family deli after her grandfather dies. Naturally, her very opinionated staff and family members make the job unbearable since they all have conflicting ideas of how to save the deli.

In addition to using Sax’s book, published by Houghton Mifflin in 2009, as source material, Save the Deli draws on Bachelis’ personal experiences. Her grandfather owned Mort’s, the Jewish deli in Tarzana.
