TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) Broadcaster CanWest Media has picked up NBC's upcoming unscripted sitcom "Howie Do It," starring Toronto-born comic Howie Mandel.

The project, which Mandel also created, will shoot in Canada, and be broadcast simultaneously in the United States and Canada. Plot details have not been revealed.

CanWest's Global Television network already airs NBC's Mandel-hosted "Deal or No Deal" game show, and last year produced a local "Deal or No Deal Canada" version, also with Mandel as host.
