YouTube Red Orders 10 Episodes of Comedy Starring Adam Pally and Sam Richardson

YouTube Red has today given a series order to an untitled comedy starring Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) and Sam Richardson (Veep, Detroiters). The order is for 10 episodes, which will debut in 2019.

Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharoah is also set to star in the comedy, though only as a recurring guest star.

The comedy explores how every rapper has a crew he can't live without - and vice versa. The story centers on how long the crew can survive without being in the limelight.

Happy Endings creator David Caspe reunites with Daniel Libman, Matthew Libman and Jordan Cahan as the writers of the new comedy. They executive produce with Jamie Tarses. Maurice "Mo" Marable will direct and co-executive produce. Sony Pictures Television will produce.
