Ellen DeGeneres is bringing a lesbian-themed sitcom plot to NBC. This comes on the heels after "The New Normal" and "Sean Saves the World" was cancelled on the struggling station, according to a Jan. 28 article on The Hollywood Reporter.

DeGeneres' new show is reportedly called "One Big Happy." It centers around a lesbian who's expecting after her best friend meets the love of life and gets married.

Liz Feldman is expected to write and produce the show. Feldman is best known as the writer for "2 Broke Girls" on CBS.

Jeff Kleeman will produce alongside Feldman. He's a well-known president for A Very Good Production.

The comedy will probably replace "Sean Saves the World" on the Thursday comedy block. The network already wiped out gay characters last season.

Feldman will be joining Ellen DeGeneres again for this sitcom. Feldman worked as a writer for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" between the years of 2003 to 2007 before the writer's strike.
