Rachel Dratch, Andrea Martin, and James Urbaniak Join Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner's USA Pilot

A few weeks ago, the USA network announced that they've ordered a pilot presentation (a.k.a. a short pilot) called Difficult People created by and starring Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner, and now, we're learning more about who else will be in the pilot. The Difficult People pilot presentation has been shooting this week in NYC, and Klausner has been revealing some of the pilot's supporting cast/guest stars via Twitter, including Rachel Dratch, James Urbaniak, Tracee Chimo (Orange Is the New Black), and Andrea Martin as the mother of Klausner's character.

Difficult People, which is being produced by Amy Poehler, stars Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner as a pair of best friends/comedians in NYC who love pop culture and hate everyone except each other. Klausner previously served as head writer on Eichner's Fuse series Billy on the Street.
