Hulu has picked up the series PEN15!
Hulu has ordered 10 episodes of middle school comedy PEN15, starring Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle.
The comedy, co-created by Erskine, Konkle and Sam Zvibleman, is described as middle school as it really happened. Erskine and Konkle play versions of themselves as 13-year-old outcasts in the year 2000, surrounded by actual 13-year-olds, where the best day of your life can turn into your worst with the stroke of a gel pen.
The project, which had been long-in-the-works, landed at Hulu based on an 11-minute presentation from Konkle and Erskine, who are best friends in real life and play best friends during a horribly awkward 7th grade.
PEN15 hails from Lonely Island, Party Over Here, Odenkirk Provissiero, and AwesomenessTV. Production will begin this summer.
