Comedy Central has given the greenlight to the comedy series, The Other Two, from former Saturday Night Live co-head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider. Kelly and Schneider will write and executive produce the series, with Kelly also directing. Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, and Tony Hernandez are also on board as executive producers.
The Other Two stars Drew Tarver (Bajillion Dollar Properie$), Heléne Yorke (Masters of Sex, High Maintenance), and Case Walker. The series will also feature Molly Shannon (SNL) and Ken Marino (Party Down).
Comedy Central President Kent Alterman made the series announcement and said, “We are excited for our first scripted show about family, mostly because we did research and discovered that nearly 100% of our audience comes from them. Plus, hearing Chris and Sarah’s names called out so much at the Emmys didn’t hurt.”
“We are so excited to make this show with Comedy Central, our incredible cast, and our joint biological father Lorne Michaels, who will be making a cameo in at least one episode, and is finding that out right now,” said Kelly and Schneider.
The Plot: The Other Two stars Drew Tarver as a 29-year-old aspiring actor wondering why he can’t get better auditions than “Man At Party Who Smells Fart,” and Heléne Yorke as his 30-year-old sister, and former professional child dancer, Brooke, who aspires to be anything other than what she is right now. As the two siblings work towards finding themselves, they must also confront the dueling emotions of envy and pride brought on by the overnight internet fame of their younger brother, 12-year-old Chase, played by real-life muscal.ly sensation Case Walker.
