And now a moment of silence for Matthew Broderick's career


Matthew Broderick is coming to series television.

The actor, who had been courted by TV networks for years, is attached to star in NBC's comedy pilot "Beach Lane," which was given the green light Monday.

"Beach Lane," from UMS, Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video and writer Paul Simms ("NewsRadio"), stars Broderick as a celebrity author hired by an irresponsible millionaire heir to run his struggling small-town newspaper in the Hamptons.

Broderick was approached to do the project months ago but would only commit after reading the final script.

His involvement in "Beach Lane" follows his guest stint on NBC's "30 Rock," which is exec produced by Michaels.

Michaels is exec producing "Beach Lane" with Marci Klein.
