Jenny Slate and Ari Graynor to Star in an FX Road Trip Comedy Pilot
Back in March it was revealed that Jenny Slate and her Obvious Child collaborators Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm were developing a pilot for FX, and today Deadline has more details on the project. The untitled pilot centers on Jenny Slate and Ari Graynor (Bad Teacher, Garfunkel and Oates, Kroll Show) as two friends named Lou and Viv who “embark on a cross-country road trip. Gutsy born and raised New Yorkers, Lou and Viv discover each other in their 30s, make a movie together, and jump into the great unknown of their next project. Lou and Viv find strength and vulnerability in each other, learning how to have a fight and somehow still get back in the car. It’s like Thelma and Louise — but nobody dies.” Robespierre will direct the pilot and co-executive produce with Holm. Production begins this week.
