With time on pilot castings running out, Lorne Michaels called upon his Saturday Night Live co-star Nasim Pedrad for a lead role in NBC’s untitled John Mulaney multi-camera comedy pilot, which Michaels is executive producing. Written/exec produced by Mulaney and exec produced by Robert Carlock, the project is a young ensemble loosely based on Mulaney’s life. It centers on John (Mulaney), whose naïve and often pointles, desire to “be a good person” challenges his friendship with his roommates, the sweet, intelligent, and lazy Jane (Pedrad) and Seymour (Griffin Newman). Elliott Gould and Martin Short co-star. If the pilot doesn’t go forward, CAA-repped Pedrad is expected to continue on SNL, where she has been since 2009. READ MORE »
