NBC is close to choosing its newest sitcom, Traveling Salesman from Endemol.
The show contains an unscripted element in which the show's fictional main character interacts with real-life people via hidden camera. Jared Stern is writing and exec producing the single-camera project loosely based on his own father and his family. Around 75% of the show will be scripted, but 25% will consist of the salesman hitting the road and attempting to sell products to unsuspecting marks.
No word on a production schedule.
