NBC has picked up comedy pilot Next Caller to series with a six episode order. I’m being told that the network is eyeing a mid-season launch for the series.

Next Caller was created by Stephen Falk and is set at a sattelite radio station and follows a brash alpha male DJ and his co-host. Universal Television are producing, with Stephen Falk serving as an executive producer on the series.

I also hear that, with the pick up of Next Caller, NBC has passed on all of its remaining pilots. Amongst the pilots not moving forward is the 20th Century Fox Television produced Downwardly Mobile, starring John Goodman and Roseanne Barr.
