Jen Kirkman Is Developing a New Comedy for FX as a Starring Vehicle for Herself
Jen Kirkman is working on a new show for FX. The LA-based standup and Chelsea Lately regular has sold the network a script for a new comedy called Jen that she will potentially create and star in, Deadline reports. Jen follows a recently-divorced woman in her mid-30s who once did everything she was expected to but is now doing whatever she wants. Right now, Kirkman only has a script deal with FX, meaning that the network has yet to greenlight a pilot or a series. Kirkman is executive producing the project alongside Chelsea Handler. Kirkman is a regular on Paul F. Tompkins’s podcast (The Pod F. Tompkast) and the Chelsea Lately spinoff After Lately. She also hosts her own podcast, I Seem Fun, and wrote her first book last year, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself.
