Streamer Apple TV+ has announced a straight-to-series order for a new, half-hour comedy series that will star Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live,” “Forever”), and is created by Alan Yang (“Little America,” “Master of None”) and Emmy Award-winner Matt Hubbard (“30 Rock,” “Forever”). Rudolph will star as Molly, a woman whose seemingly perfect life is upended after her husband leaves her with nothing but $87 billion.
In addition to starring, Rudolph will executive produce through her production company, Animal Pictures, with Natasha Lyonne and Danielle Renfrew Behrens also executive producing. Dave Becky of 3 Arts will also executive produce. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, will serve as the studio.
The project marks the second collaboration between Apple TV+ and Yang following the premiere of the anthology series, “Little America”.
