NBC has ordered 13 episodes of the previously announced TV pilot Go On for the 2012-13 season, according to Variety. Starring Tony Award winners Laura Benanti and Julie White, the Scott Silveri project is directed by Todd Holland.
In addition to Benanti (Gypsy, Women on the Verge of a Nevous Breakdown) and White (The Little Dog Laughed), Go On features Matthew Perry (Friends), Khary Payton (G.I. Joe: Renegades), Allison Miller (Terra Nova) and Suzy Nakamura (The West Wing).
The series follows Ryan (Perry), an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who, trying to move on from a loss, finds surprising solace in the members of his mandatory support group. Anne (White), a feisty but grieving widow, searches for peace alongside Ryan. Lauren (Benanti), the leader of the Transitions support group, is wound tightly but manages to keep her cool, at least most of the time.
