Maya Rudolph is reportedly looking at launching a new variety show, according to Deadline.com.

Rudolph was under contract at NBC for "Up All Night," but the show's future rapidly became more and more bleak as the months wore on in between its last episode and the purposed multi-cam reboot. After Christina Applegate announced her departure from the series, NBC reduced the episode order from five to one. There is still a chance the rebooted "Up All Night" episode will come to fruition, but it's beginning to look more and more unlikely.

Both Rudolph and co-star Will Arnett were said to be in high demand from various networks for new pilots, with Arnett recently signing on for CBS's comedy pilot from Greg Garcia. Arnett's role is in second position to "Up All Night."

According to Deadline.com, Rudolph has turned down multiple pilot offers -- close to five the website claims -- and has been developing a variety show with interest from various networks and studios, including NBC.

Rudolph is also reportedly pregnant with her fourth child.

A request for comment from Rudolph's publicist was not immediately returned.
