NBC announced yet another series pickup for the 2010-2011 season. This one’s a comedy about a bunch of couples who are interested in understanding the makings of an “ideal relationship.

Relationship comedies aren’t exactly new territory for NBC (or any of the major networks for that matter) but this one has some serious talent behind it. Set to exec-produce the series is Jon Pollack (30 Rock) and Scott Silvery (Friends). Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld) is on board to direct. As their credits are some of NBC’s best and most beloved comedies, there’s a good chance Perfect Couples could turn out to be another great series. Or it could just be another relationship comedy. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Below is NBC’s description for the series.

Perfect Couples depicts the misadventures of three engaging couples as they struggle to find out what makes the ideal relationship -- and how to maintain it through humorous trial-and-error. The series explores their heroic journey in search of the perfect relationship without destroying each other in the process.

Dave (Kyle Howard, My Boys) and Julia (Christine Woods, Flash Forward) are the relatable, normal couple, but Julia's hope of remaining the cool, low-maintenance chick is tested by Dave's attempts to keep both his wife and his needy best friend Vance (Dave Walton, NBC's 100 Questions) equally happy. Vance, along with the neurotic Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), are the high-passion, high-drama couple who bring out the best and worst in each other.

The third duo features Rex (Hayes MacArthur, She's Out of My League), a reformed party guy, and, and his wife, Leigh (Olivia Munn, Attack of the Show), who considers herself as the group's mother hen. Believing that they are relationship experts, Rex and Leigh have attended every class and seminar on relationships -- and regard themselves as the "perfect couple."

Jon Pollack (30 Rock) and Scott Silveri (Friends) are the executive producers while Andy Ackerman (Seinfeld, The New Adventures of Old Christine) is the director. The series is produced by Universal Media Studios.
