John Stamos’ love affair with NBC continues.
The former star of “ER” who recently appeared on “The New Normal” is close to starring in the network’s drama pilot “I Am Victor.”
The Universal Television pilot, based on author Jo Nesbo’s upcoming book, is described as being like “House M.D.” centering on powerful divorce attorney Victor Port (played by Stamos), who has a unique view on relationships.
Port is L.A.’s most sought- after divorce lawyer and is “charming, brazen and direct and unapologetically says what most people think but dare not say.” He also uses methods for his clients like manipulation, extortion, negotiation and the regular old law.
Mark Goffman (“The West Wing,” “Studio 60”) will write the script and exec produce along with Katie Jacobs (“House”), Daniel Rappaport, Meghan Lyvers, Nesbo and Nicolas Salomonsson.
Stamos, a former Broadway actor, starred in “ER” on the network. He also recently appeared on “The New Normal” in an arc where his sexuality was in question, and appeared on “Glee” and “Jake in Progress.”
He is perhaps best known as Uncle Jessie on ABC’s “Full House,” and has also played drums with the Beach Boys.
Stamos is represented by WME and Brillstein Entertainment.
