Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s Nobodies has been given a 12 episode season one order from TV Land. The comedy has MADTv‘s Michael McDonald on board as showrunner and executive producer, with Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf, and Rachel Ramras starring, writing, and executive producing. McCarthy and Falcone are also executive producing through their On The Day production company. “Working with our hilarious and talented friends Rachel, Hugh and Larry is a complete joy. Adding a person of Mike’s caliber and a network as supportive as TV Land is truly a dream come true,” said Falcone and McCarthy.
Falcone directed the pilot and stepped in front of the camera as an episode one guest star. Jason Bateman, Maya Rudolph, Jim Rash, and Nat Faxon also guest starred in the Nobodies pilot. “The initial pitch for Nobodies was really funny, and man, did they ever deliver a pilot that is so honest and bold that it’ll make you laugh and cringe at the same time,” said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming TV Land.
The Plot: Groundlings alums Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras (Mike Tyson Mysteries) and revolves around the three as they try desperately to land one of their famous friends for a feature script that they have developed, so that they, too, can rise to fame in Hollywood.
