NBC buys Girl Scouts comedy from Late Night writer Ally Hord

Ally Hord is selling more than Girl Scout cookies. NBC has put Woman Scouts in development from the former Late Night with Seth Meyers writer. The comedy centers on a feminist who drops out of grad school and decides to kickstart the lives of the women around her by starting an adult Girl Scout troop, which sounds like if brunch came with merit badges. “There’s no limit to what life achievement badge they can conquer together, if they can just figure out the whole sisterhood thing first,” NBC describes in a release.

Hord served as a Late Night writer from 2016-2017 and aided with the 75th Golden Globe Awards, which Seth Meyers hosted earlier this year. She’s also produced Funny or Die’s first two feature-length films iSteve and The Art of the Deal. If you’re more of a visual person, you’ll likely recognize Hord’s face from her Late Night appearances in the “Point, Counterpoint” segments. On board for Woman Scouts are executive producers Meyers and Champions co-creator Charlie Grandy. The show could join another Seth Meyers-guided series at the Peacock Network. A.P. Bio begins its second season at the network this year.

Keep your eyes out for a bunch of grown women running around town with green sashes. It’s not a bachelorette party; it’s a hot new comedy on NBC! Now watch creator Ally Hord do some “Point, Counterpoint” with her old boss.
