TV Land has given a 12-episode order to single-camera comedy “Nobodies” from Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone through their production banner On The Day. The upcoming series, which is executive produced and written by “Groundlings” alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras, revolves around the three as they try desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they have developed, so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.
Ben Falcone, Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”), Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”), Jim Rash (“Community”) and Nat Faxon (“Married”) will guest star in the pilot. In addition to McCarthy, Falcone and McDonald, JAX Media’s Tony Hernandez will executive produce for TV Land, expanding the partnership that currently includes “Younger” and “The Jim Gaffigan Show.”
“Nobodies” is expected to debut on TV Land in 2017.
