Molly Shannon Working On New Fox Comedy Series

Nov 07, 2013

Fox is developing a single-camera comedy series starring "Saturday Night Live" alum Molly Shannon, Deadline reports.

Shannon will play a career driven woman whose lifestyle clashes with her stay-at-home pregnant daughter; the series is being written by Bruce McCulloch from "Kids in the Hall." This is a reunion for McCulloch and Shannon who previously worked together when he directed her in the 1999 film, "Superstar."

Shannon previously headlined NBC's "Kath and Kim" in 2008, and has guest starred in a number of other shows like "Web Therapy" and HBO's "Enlightened." The "SNL" veteran was nominated for an Emmy for her work on "Enlightened" earlier this year.

Shannon can be seen next in an upcoming arc in "Raising Hope" on Fox.
