EXCLUSIVE: NBC has handed a put pilot commitment to Home, a single-camera comedy about an American couple who take in a Syrian refugee. It is based on the British series, which was created by Rufus Jones and originally aired on Channel 4 in the UK. The adaptation will be written/executive produced by former Black-ish EP Stacy Traub and directed/executive produced by Ben Stiller.
Home follows a new couple, Mark and Melanie, who go on a long weekend trip to a cabin in the woods with Melanie’s son Jonah. Their plan to come back with a tan and some happy memories is interrupted when they return with Jay, a Syrian refugee who moves in with them, and the cobbled-together family soon discovers what home really means.
