Melissa McCarthy-Ben Falcone Pilot Gets TV Land Pickup


Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s pilot comedy, Nobodies, has been picked up by TV Land. Check out the news below!


TV Land has given a pilot order to “Nobodies,” the project exec produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone that centers on what it’s like to be the friends of more-established Hollywood names.

Originally titled “Friends With Melissa,” the project is starring, exec produced and written by fellow Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras (“Mike Tyson Mysteries”). Inspired by their real life, the trio will play themselves — struggling creatives who are trying desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they’ve developed so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.

McCarthy and Falcone are exec producing through their On the Day shingle. He is directing and will appear in the pilot. Should the pilot go to series, she will appear in future episodes.
