‘Bridesmaids’ Star Wendi McLendon-Covey Cast in ABC Pilot
Wendi McLendon-Covey, best known for her roles in Bridesmaids and Reno 911!, has been cast in a new untitled comedy pilot (formerly called How the F— Am I Normal?) for ABC, TV Line reports. It’s a family sitcom set in the 1980s, based on the childhood of creator Adam F. Goldberg (creator of Fox’s short-lived Christian Slater sitcom Breaking In). McLendon-Covey will play Beverly Gold, the female lead, an overbearing loudmouth mom who, along with her hot-tempered husband, can’t stand to see their three eccentric kids grow up. The pilot will be directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, The King of Kong), produced by Adam Sandler’s company Happy Madison, and the show already has an early pilot commitment from ABC. It’ll be interesting to see who gets cast as the father on the show because it’ll probably be somebody as funny and awesome as Wendi McLendon-Covey.
