Actor Matthew Broderick may have to order some extra sunscreen if his new pilot set in the Hamptons takes off. Broderick is set to play a newspaperman hired by a millionaire to run an East End paper. No word on whether filming will actually take place in the Hamptons, but the pilot will run on NBC.

Broderick and actress/wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, have been Hamptons regulars for years. At one point, they reportedly owned three homes there. These days, the couple is said to own two homes on the same street in Amagansett. A few years ago, OK! Magazine listed one of their Amagansett properties as one of the top 10 US celebrity summer homes. Last year, the home made the list of In Touch Weekly’s best beach houses.

Broderick’s pilot, “Beach Lane” is produced by Lorne Michaels, who owns a home in East Hampton.
