NBC has ordered a pilot for “Happy Peppers,” a comedy hailing from “Will & Grace” co-creator Max Mutchnick and sitcom writer Jeff Astrof.

“Happy Peppers” is about an adult brother and sister who wind up living together for the first time since they were kids, after one of them suffers a big loss. They become each other’s wingmen, shoulder to cry on, best friend and punching bag as they navigate love, loss and work while helping to get each other “un-stuck.”

The multi-cam comedy will be co-written and executive produced by Mutchnick and Astrof. Their respective banners, Too Mutch Ink and Barge Productions, will produce with Warner Bros. Television where Mutchnick is based.

“Happy Peppers” is Mutchnick’s second current project at NBC, following the much-buzzed-about “Will & Grace” revival, which will be spearheaded by him and co-creator David Kohan. Original stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally will all return for the special 10-episode series.

The comedy also marks Astrof’s second project at NBC. He’s the co-creator or the upcoming mockumentary series “Trial & Error,” which debuts in March.
