Bill Lawrence has more or less mastered the workplace sitcom, having created Scrubs and co-created Spin City. (He also co-created Cougar Town and produced Undateable). Now Deadline reports that Lawrence and Undateable creator Adam Sztykiel are taking on the biggest workplace of all: outer space. The duo’s next show is Spaced Out, a sitcom in development at NBC set in the near-future world of commercial space travel. So it’ll probably be either a futuristic Wings, or a funnier The Expanse. They’ll have competition, though, as Seth MacFarlane has also entered the sitcom space race with a new Fox dramedy series set aboard a spaceship.
