Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph is reuniting with her former SNL boss Lorne Michaels, ex-SNL writer Emily Spivey and NBC on Spivey’s comedy pilot for the peacock network, which Michaels is executive producing.
Word is Rudolph is set for the co-lead opposite Christina Applegate in the untitled project, an irreverent look at parenthood through the POV of an acerbic working mother (Applegate) -– who never thought she’d be a mom -– along with her stay-at-home husband and opinionated parents. Rudolph, who was approached for several pilots this season, will play her co-worker and best friend. Rudolph, who spent a decade on SNL, will next be seen starring opposite her former SNL cohort Kristen Wiig in the Universal comedy Bridesmaids, which opens May 13. The actress, repped by WME and 3 Arts, recently wrapped production on Friends with Kids.
