Rachael Harris and Angela Kinsey Team Up for New Fox Comedy ‘Dirty Blondes’
Fox just won a multi-network bidding war for a new comedy series starring Rachael Harris (The Hangover) and Angela Kinsey (The Office), Deadline reports. The pilot, Dirty Blondes, will be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and written by Stacy Traub (Glee) and is based on Harris and Kinsey’s real-life friendship. The two have known each other for 16 years, since meeting at The Groundlings in Los Angeles in the 1990s. The show follows two ladies who have been friends for a long time and grow closer together after they each get divorced. Dirty Blondes has a put pilot commitment from Fox, which means the network has to air the first episode or pay a ton of money to the studio, so it’s pretty much a sure thing we’ll be seeing this show on the air next fall. Angela Kinsey is the second Office star (after Rainn Wilson, who’ll be starring the spinoff The Farm) to book a new show for when the NBC sitcom goes off the air after this season. We’re still waiting to hear what Creed’s next move is. Any day now.
