NBC has given pilot orders to two dramas and three comedies from Carlton Cuse, Dick Wolf, Jason Bateman and others.

From Lost's Cuse, The Sixth Gun is a supernatural Western that follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own otherworldly powers. The pilot is based on a best-selling graphic novel. Cuse will show-run and executive-produce, alongside Eric Gitter and Andy Borne. Ryan Condal will write.

The Blacklist is a drama in which the world's most wanted criminal mysteriously turns himself in. Though he offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with, he'll only do so if he can work with a newly minted FBI agent with whom he appears to have no connection. Alias' John Eisendrath will show-run and executive-produce, alongside Perfect Strange rs' Jon Bokenkamp, who will write the pilot. John Fox and John Davis will also executive-produce.

The network also picked up an untitled drama from Rand Ravich, in which Washington's most powerful players are pulled into an international conspiracy that could bring everyone from CEOs to the President of the United States to their knees. Ravich will write and executive-produce, alongside Far Shariat.

On the comedy side, NBC has given a pilot order to a project starring Will & Grace alum Sean Hayes as a father who has to navigate parenthood —  his 14-year-old daughter has just moved in — and his temperamental new boss at work. Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted) will write and executive-produce alongside Hayes and Todd Milliner. />

Holding Patterns is an ensemble multi-camera project about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Justin Spitzer will write and executive-produce, alongside Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan.

Girlfriend in a Coma, from Law & Order's Wolf, is about a 34-year-old woman who wakes from a coma after nearly two decades to find out that she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy that she was unaware of when her life was put on hold. The single-camera comedy is based on a book by Douglas Coupland and will be written by Liz Brixius, who will also executive-produce with Wolf, Peter Jankowski and Danielle Gelber.

Finally, the untitled D.J. Nash comedy tells the story of a family who grows closer together post-divorce, told through the perspective of the son who idolizes his blind father and is bemused by his mother's newfound adolescence. Nash will write and executive-produce alongside Arrested Development's Jason Bateman and Jim Garavante.
