TV Land Orders Script for Single Camera Comedy From Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone

(via Deadline)

TV Land’s rebranding seems to be going alright.

The Jim Gaffigan Show and Younger have been bright spots for the new TV Land

Now, they’re on to expand their comedy offerings and stand out in an ever-increasing number of non-broadcast comedy networks with a new project from the comedy duo of Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone.

Friends with Melissa will contrast the varying careers of Groundlings alums ranging from her fame and fortune to being stuck writing for children’s TV.

If done right, this could be kind of like Curb Your Enthusiasm from a different angle with the lovable McCarthy at the forefront.
