Seth Meyers & Lorne Michaels are working on a NBC Brothers Comedy  
Hi, I'm Shanique and I'm known as mistersethneedles (previously spookycandy) over on Tumblr.
Enough of myself.

As I'm trying to keep the Seth love to continue here. Found some exciting news and thought it'd be useful to add it here.

NBC's 2013-14 development season is in full swing, with the network giving script orders to a brothers comedy and hotel drama.

The untitled brothers effort is a multicamera comedy from Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers and his younger brother, Josh Meyers (Mad TV).

The duo will write and executive produce alongside The Colbert Report's Peter Grosz, with SNL's Lorne Michaels on board to executive produce the Universal Television project through his Broadway Video shingle.

If ultimately ordered to series, it would join a growing crop of Michaels projects, which includes Up All Night, 30 Rock and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Hotel California, from Universal Television, revolves around a high-end Los Angeles hotel and its general manager and permanent resident Jamie Jones, who's determined to keep the property as "the place to stay" in the city.

Ol Parker, the screenwriter behind The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, will pen the script, with Working Title TV's Daniel Pipski on board to executive produce.

Parker also wrote and directed the 2005 feature Imagine Me & You.

Seth Meyers is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Hirsch Wallerstein; Josh Meyers is with the Kohner Agency and Brillstein; and Grosz is at ICM Partners and Brillstein. Parker is with the Knight Hall Agency and Management 360.

But I have a question, although it's pretty exciting but is there a possibility that he's going to leave SNL? Just a month ago, he was tipping to take over Regis' role to be the second permanent host alongside Kelly Ripa on Live! with Kelly but he dismissed that he's not going to do it and in love with SNL. Also he will be back on SNL for the election season this fall. Although it's on the same network, if it's green light, he would be working more on the sitcom with Josh and Lorne Michaels than SNL. But I don't know. I hope he'll be able to balance the two out equally!
