*Perhaps eyeing an exit from “Saturday Night Live,” cast member Kenan Thompson has lined up a primetime TV gig with NBC.
Thompson will star in an as-yet-untitled family comedy to be executive produced by “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels. According to TV Guide, the project has a script commitment from the network, and would feature Thompson as a man who moves in with his in-laws.
Another member of the “SNL” team, writer Bryan Tucker, is writing the script and will executive produce with Thompson, Michaels and Andrew Singer (“30 Rock”).
This would mark Thompson’s return to series TV, where he first rose to fame on Nickelodeon, with “All That” and its spin-off, “Kenan & Kel.” On ‘SNL,” where he has been for the past 10 seasons, Thompson is best known for playing Deandre Cole, the singing host of fictional BET talk show “What Up With That,” and for a host of impersonations, including Al Sharpton, Bill Bosby and Whoopi Goldberg.
