Pilot Season: Get the scoop!

In the comedy, two female friends — Nicole (Andrea Anders), who seemingly has the perfect life and, Jen, who can't seem to get it together — live two very different lives, but can't live without each other. Dratch will play Lisa, the newest member of Nicole and Jen's group of lady friends. She's just a little bit worse off in every way than Jen, which is why Jen keeps her around.

Danny Comden (Urban Legend, I'm With Her) has also joined the cast as Jen's ex-husband, a rock star—type chef.

The New Adventures of Old Christine's Lizer will write and executive-produce.
