NBC has inked a commitment to air a "Marley & Me" TV series pilot, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed.

The TV series will serve as a sequel to the 2008 comedy-drama film that starred Owen Wilson and "Friends" alum Jennifer Aniston.

While the "Marley & Me" film was based on John Grogan's best-selling novel of the same name, the script of the TV series sequel will be written by Emmy-winning scriptwriter Jenny Bicks, who wrote for "Sex and the City" from 1998 to 2004.
