NBC scraps Cosby TV comedy project

NBC has scrapped a Bill Cosby comedy which was under development, the second outlet within a day to put off or abandon a Cosby project as another sexual assault allegation against the comic has emerged.

NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said today that the project "is no longer under development", and would make no further comment.

The announcement came after Netflix announced yesterday that it was postponing the November 27 premiere of a new Cosby stand-up comedy special.

Actress Janice Dickinson became the third woman in recent weeks to allege that she was attacked by Cosby when she told Entertainment Tonight that she was sexually assaulted by the comic in 1982.

Cosby's lawyer said Dickinson's charges are "false and outlandish".
