From Whitney Cummings, whose other pilot was just picked up by NBC, Two Broke Girls stars Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings as two girls from very different backgrounds who work as waitresses in New York, hoping to start their own business. The project was co-written by Sex and the City's Michael Patrick King.
