Short Take: NBC bringing Web comedy to TV

NBC has ordered a pilot for Comedy Bytes, an hour-long comedy-reality project from Nash Entertainment. The program aims to take comedy content from the Internet and translate it directly to the TV format. Streaming video, animation, and parodies posted on various Web sites would be used in the same way so-called reality producers now harvest home videos and news footage. NBC is an investor in CNET.
