Development News - June 8, 2016

FX's Untitled Cristin Milioti & Nina Pedrad Project.

  • FX has ordered a pilot for an untitled comedy written by and starring Cristin Milioti (Fargo) and Nina Pedrad (New Girl). They will serve as executive producers with Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Glenn Howertown, Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel. FX Productions and RCG Productions will produce. The project follows Maxine, her best friends Natalie and Amy, and stepbrother Landis as they navigate the abject shit-storm that is adulthood. Milioti will play Maxine, an entitled actress-turned-process server who takes lemons and makes a fire out of lemons, burning herself and others. Max's dysfunctional, tight-knit clan serves as her surrogate family. Pedrad will play Natalie, sharp witted and scientifically includes who sells weed and prescription drugs, but blanches at the term "drug dealer."
