Kerri Kenney-Silver, Jamie Denbo, and Chelsea Handler Are Developing a Brothel Comedy for IFC

IFC is developing another scripted comedy that sounds a lot like an amazing Reno 911! spinoff. Deadline reports that the network is currently developing a series called Rabbit Hole co-created and written by Kerri Kenney-Silver and Ronna & Beverly's Jamie Denbo produced by Chelsea Handler and her company Borderline Amazing. The series will center on "Nevada's second most famous brothel" with Kenney-Silver playing Dame Delilah, a character she first debuted on My Damn Channel back in 2008. Comedy Central was developing Rabbit Hole in December 2011, but it never got picked up to series.

Rabbit Hole joins other recently announced IFC projects including a Spoils [...]

Trade Roundup: Kerri Kenney-Silver, Dan Fogelman

In addition to its three script orders earlier today, Comedy Central has started developing a half-hour scripted/improv mockumentary from Reno 911!'s Kerri Kenney-Silver and UCBer Jamie Denbo. The show is set at "a low-rent legal brothel in Winnemucca, Nevada called Dame Delilah’s Rabbit Hole Ranch," and Kenney-Silver will play Dame Delilah. Man I hope this becomes a real show.

ABC has green-lit a pilot by Crazy, Stupid, Love screenwriter Dan Fogelman about "a family that moves into a highly desirable gated community in New Jersey only to discover the entire neighborhood is made up of aliens disguised as humans." Seems like "weird neighbors" is a trend this [...]

Paul Feig Is Making a Spinoff of 'The Heat' Starring Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin

Paul Feig is planning a spinoff to last summer's The Heat that will star Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin, who played members of Melissa McCarthy's Boston-based family, Beth and Gina. Deadline says the movie will be written by LA-based writer Tricia McAlpin, who improvises on UCB LA's The Smokes alongside Heat writer Katie Dippold. There's no storyline for the characters yet, and the film doesn't mean that the reported Heat sequel is definitely dead.

Denbo and Chaffin are best known for their talk show-hosting characters Ronna & Beverly. Feig directed a Showtime pilot of Ronna & Beverly, and co-produced a six-episode series that eventually aired on Sky Atlantic in the UK. The characters also host [...]

Ronna & Beverly Are On Their Way Across the Atlantic With Paul Feig

Beloved web series Ronna & Beverly didn't get picked up after its 2008 pilot in the US, but Sky Atlantic HD in the UK has ordered six episodes of the mock talk show, with Paul Feig producing. Guess the British did a better job of appreciating Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo's characters. “British audiences responded to these overbearing American characters, and the show is Ab Fab meets everyone’s obnoxious parents who ask horrifying questions,” said Feig. Fingers crossed for your return to the US, Ronna and Bev, but until then, cheerio, have fun driving on the left side of the road, and don't fall down the apples [...]
