Comedian and star of last year’s indie comedy hit Obvious Child, Jenny Slate, will star in a new comedy show for FX. What’s more, the show is to be co-created by Slate’s Obvious Child writer Elisabeth Holm and the film’s director Gillian Robespierre.
The project is said to tell the story of two native New York girls who are creative partners, named Viv and Lou, who become friends, make a film together and decide to drive across the country in search of inspiration for their new effort.
Ari Graynor (For A Good Time Call…) will co-star opposite Slate, with production on the pilot set to begin as early as next week in New York City.
Outside of Obvious Child, Slate has recently appeared in hit shows such as House of Lies and Parks and Recreation, as well as enjoying a stint on Saturday Night Live.
