Hughley lodging at NBC, 'Solvang'

4 October 2002 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After going to the suburbs with his series The Hughleys, comedian D.L. Hughley is headed for California's wine country for his next series project. Hughley is in negotiations with NBC for a development deal to co-write, executive produce and star in Solvang, a comedy for NBC Studios described to be in the vein of Green Acres. The project centers on a black city guy who moves to a farm in the Central Coast town of Solvang with his family and his Latina caretaker and her family and opens a bed-and-breakfast. Hughley is writing the script with Donick Cary (Fox's The Simpsons), who will also executive produce with Hughley. Hughley's semiauthobiographical series The Hughleys bowed out in May after four seasons -- two on ABC and two on UPN. It also earned the comedian four Image Award nominations. On the big screen, he starred in The Brothers and Spike Lee's The Original Kings of Comedy. Cary's credits include CBS' Late Show With David Letterman and NBC's Just Shoot Me. Hughley and Cary are repped by CAA. Hughley is additionally repped by 3 Arts Entertainment and attorney Jim Jackoway. »
