"Suburgatory" 2.0? Kenan Thompson might be making it happen.

According to THR, "Saturday Night Live" masterminds Lorne Michaels and Kenan Thompson are teaming up to create a single-camera NBC comedy centered on Kenan Monroe (Thompson), a guy who moves from New York to live with his in-laws in the suburbs. Michaels will executive produce the project.
