The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has filmed scenes for a comedy pilot being considered by ABC for its fall schedule, the show's producers said Wednesday.
The comedy, which does not have a title yet, is being made by Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman, the creative team behind NBC's "Ed." It stars Donal Logue as a janitor who schemes with his friends to rob someone rich and famous.
While pitching the series, the producers jokingly titled the show "Let's Rob Jeff Goldblum," although Goldblum proved unavailable for the project, according to The New York Times.
Jagger was approached and liked the idea. Since the Stones were touring, his scenes were filmed recently in New Zealand, said Charissa Gilmore, a spokeswoman for producers Touchstone Television.
ABC will decide on their fall schedule by May 16, with the Jagger pilot one of several new comedies under consideration. ABC is currently short of hit comedies, and has a number of holes in its schedule, so those factors may work in the show's favor, reports AP.
