Miranda Cosgrove, probably best known for her role on Nickelodeon's iCarly, has landed a new comedy pilot on NBC. The show is about two adult children who move back home with their parents who--up until the move--were empty-nesters. That definitely sounds like a story line that many--both young and old--can relate to these days.

As yet untitled, the pilot is being written by Hot in Cleveland writer Suzanne Martin, and will be directed and executive produced by James Burrows. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions will also serve as executive producers.

The sitcom has yet to be fully cast. Miranda Cosgrove will play the role of Shea, the younger of the two sisters to move home. She is a bit socially awkward and has a doctorate in astrophysics. Shea dreams of becoming an astronaut. This certainly sounds like a fun role for the former iCarly star. The role of the older sister hasn't yet been filled.

This isn't the first NBC pilot that Miranda Cosgrove has landed. In 2013 she was cast in Girlfriend in a Coma, but the show wasn't picked up.

In addition to her role in iCarly, Miranda Cogrove starred in Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh. She also starred alongside Jack Black in his film School of Rock.

Hopefully the role in this NBC comedy pilot launches Miranda Cosgrove back on to prime time TV. She might one day soon be one of NBC's weeknight stars.
