Cristin Milioti Nina Pedrad

FX Networks has ordered a comedy pilot written by and starring Cristin Milioti and Nina Pedrad. 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' (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton, and 3 Arts' Michael Rotenberg (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Silicon Valley) and Nick Frenkel (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Mick). Pedrad will serve as showrunner. This half-hour comedy pilot follows Maxine, her best friends Natalie and Amy, and stepbrother Landis as they navigate the abject shit-storm that is adulthood. Cristin 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 and always lets her sing the Aaron Burr parts of Hamilton. Nina Pedrad will play Natalie. Sharp witted and scientifically inclined, Nat sells weed and prescription drugs, but blanches at the term "drug dealer." She wants to be the Sheryl Sandberg of weed. The other two roles have yet to be cast.
