This pair of series orders for Awkwafina and Robbie at Comedy Central puts a smile on our faces over here at the Bureau.
Awkwafina continues Akwafina’s hot streak from Ocean’s 8, Crazy Rich Asians, and SNL to having her very own sitcom based on her salad days in Brooklyn. Robbie (co-written by Anthony King) also puts the amazing Rory Scovel in a role that we’ve already imagined him doing so well, a highly pressured youth basketball league coach. That’s probably because we’ve seen him riff out a hilarious half time speech on stage at least a few times.
Also, we’re pretty psyched for supporting roles from BD Wong and Beau Bridges in each show respectively.
We’ll be waiting as patiently as we can for their trailers to get that first taste of what’s to come.
