NBC is planning a new sitcom from actor/writer Paul Rust which will be produced through Conan O’Brien’s Conaco at Universal Media Studios, Variety reports. Rust will write the project and star as himself, recounting his days as a college graduate who takes a job at a small-town Wal-Mart (in the show, it will be a fictional store). He has previously acted in I Love You, Beth Cooper and Inglourious Basterds.
