UNCG Alum, Emily Spivey, creates new show in the NBC line up

The new NBC situation comedy “Up All Night” airing for the first time after “America’s Got Talent” next Wednesday is created and executive produced by Emily Spivey, class of ’93. After working at writing comedy for several seasons for “MadTV,” one season with “King of the Hill,” eight seasons with “Saturday Night Live,” and one season with “Parks and Recreation,” last year Emily worked on pitching her pilot to NBC. The program which stars Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph is co-executive produced by Lorne Michaels.

We’re hoping it will capture the audience and be a successful part of NBC’s programming for the future.
