NBC announced five new fall shows and three mid-season replacements last week, and now the network's West Coast president, Scott Sassa, has announced that out actor-author Rupert Everett will shoot a pilot for a possible mid-season replacement, reports Zap2It.com. Everett's series, Mr. Ambassador, went to NBC after a bidding war with CBS and ABC--the Peacock snagged the sitcom about an uptight British ambassador learning to loosen up after being assigned to Washington, D.C., by guaranteeing Everett that he would be paid for 13 episodes.
