Pilot Season: CBS Picks Up a Super Fun Comedy, and a Detective Drama
CBS is looking to add more fun to its lineup. The network has ordered a pilot of Super Fun Night, a half-hour comedy to be produced and written by Bridesmaids' Rebel Wilson. The Australian-born actress will also star in the show.
Super Fun Night will follow three nerdy female friends on their "funcomfortable" quest to have really, really fun Friday nights.
