NBC can’t seem to get enough laughs from Ellen DeGeneres and has bought another one of her comedy TV shows, according to Deadline.com.

The untitled series follows a successful, independent 32-year-old woman who freaks out and reevaluates her life decisions when she notices she’s listed as “single” on the paperwork for the house she’s about to close on.

Convinced she’s going to die alone, she seeks the advice and support of those around her to reassure her that living alone was the right choice.

A single-camera comedy, the show is produced by DeGeneres’ company A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. Television and is written and co-produced by Lauren Pomerantz, senior writer for the syndicated talk show Ellen.

This isn't the first time NBC has picked up Degeneres’ work. Last season, the network bought her comedy The Smart One, though the project, starring her wife  was later taken by ABC.
