On Situation: Comedy, Hayes tells TV Guide that they will “shoot two sitcom pilots, and have America decide which one they want to see go to series. But it could hit or not. I mean, who knows!

According to Variety, Shar Jackson “is teaming up with a trio of producers to pitch a … show [that] would be a half-hour, semi-comic docusoap following Jackson as she works to get back into music and acting while raising her newborn son and the 2-year-old daughter she had with Federline.” One of the producers said that they want Britney’s future husband to be on the show: “Kevin was there for the delivery, and he’s going to be a part of the baby’s life.”
