Molly Shannon to Star in a Fox Comedy Created by Kids in the Hall’s Bruce McCulloch
Fox is developing a new comedy for the 2014-15 season that Molly Shannon would potentially star in and produce, with the script coming from Kids in the Hall alum Bruce McCulloch, who will also serve as showrunner, Deadline reports. The untitled comedy follows a professional woman named Fiona (Shannon) in conflict with her pregnant daughter, who lives with her. Shannon and McCulloch previously worked together on the SNL spinoff movie Superstar, which she starred in and he directed. Recently, Shannon has been keeping busy with recurring roles on Enlightened, Raising Hope, and HBO’s upcoming Getting On, while McCulloch recurred on the Netflix revival of Arrested Development and starred in/co-wrote the Kids in the Hall’s 2010 reunion miniseries Death Comes to Town.
