TV legend Burnett signs up for sitcom project

Poehler publicist Lewis Kay and ABC have confirmed the project, a so-called “put pilot” deal for a multicamera sitcom.

Burnett, 83, has had a six-decade run on stage, in films and especially on television, where her “Carol Burnett” variety show aired for 11 seasons on CBS, wrapping in 1979. Although she’s stayed busy on TV as both an actress and comedian, her most recent series, NBC’s sketch-comedy “Carol Company,” aired a quarter-century ago.
