Milioti (Fargo, How I Met Your Mother, The Wolf of Wall Street) and Pedrad (New Girl, 30 Rock) will serve as executive producers along with RCG Productions' Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton, and 3 Arts' Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel. Pedrad will also serve as showrunner.
This half-hour comedy pilot, according to a press release, 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, who is described as “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 and always lets her sing the Aaron Burr parts of Hamilton." Nina Pedrad will play Natalie, who is “sharp witted and scientifically inclined…sells weed and prescription drugs, but blanches at the term ’drug dealer.’ She wants to be the Sheryl Sandberg of weed.”
“We are so excited to be working with a network as fearless as FX and are honored to potentially join the fives of shows about women on television today,” said Milioti and Pedrad in a statement.
A timetable for the series has not been announced.
