TV Land Orders Sitcom Pilot ‘Nobodies’

Melissa McCarthy is One of the Executive Producers

TV Land has ordered a pilot for a potential new comedy called “Nobodies,” starring, executive produced and written by “Groundlings” alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras (“Mike Tyson Mysteries”), and also to be executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and comedic actor/director Ben Falcone through their production company On The Day. The pilot is inspired by Davidson, Dorf and Ramras, who in their real lives, watched as their friends from “The Groundlings” went on to star in blockbuster comedies and win Oscars, while they toiled away in Hollywood.

The scoop: “Nobodies” will follow Davidson, Dorf and Ramras, playing themselves, as they try desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they’ve developed so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood. The pilot will shoot in Los Angeles in winter of 2016 with McCarthy and Falcone directing and guest-starring – Falcone in the pilot, and McCarthy in a future episode, should the pilot go to series.
