SNL Alum Nasim Pedrad Will Star In Her Very Own TV Comedy Series 


Just when you thought you’d turned on the TV for the last time: a brand new comedy series. Former Saturday Night Live cast member Nasim Pedrad signed a deal with Fox to create, star in and executive produce her very own show.

From Deadline:

Pedrad is already in the Fox family. This season, she co-starred on the Fox/Universal TV comedy series Mulaney. She is recurring on the Fox/20th TV comedy New Girland a regular on the upcoming first installment of Fox/20th TV’s comedy-horror anthology series Scream Queens, from the Glee trio of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, which began shooting earlier this month in New Orleans.

But it looks like she has to still do other people’s shit before she gets to developing her own series.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

“Nasim’s an undeniable creative force in front of the camera and a brilliant writer/producer behind the camera,” 20th Century Fox Television president of creative affairs Jonnie Davis said. “We’ve long admired her work on SNL and Mulaney, and we think she’ll be hugely valuable to us on the comedy side. First up, she’ll join Scream Queens — why shouldn’t her introduction to the 20th family be on one of our most anticipated new shows from one of our greatest showrunners? And we can’t wait to develop with her later this year.”

What’s it gonna be about though?? No one knows what it’s about!
