Showtime has given a pilot order for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a 30-minute "comedy with musical elements" from writers Aline Brosh McKenna and Rachel Bloom.
Bloom stars in the project as Rebecca, a successful, driven, and possibly crazy young woman who impulsively gives up her partnership at a prestigious law firm and her upscale apartment in Manhattan to move to West Covina, California looking for love.
"This pilot is an exciting change of pace for us," Showtime President David Nevins said in a statement. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is built on the inspired comedy and songwriting of Rachel Bloom — who we believe is ready to break out."
