Jenny Slate To Co-Star In ‘Super Fun Night’
by Nellie Andreeva
Saturday Night Live alumna Jenny Slate has been cast as a lead opposite Rebel Wilson in CBS’ comedy pilot Super Fun Night. The project, written by Wilson and produced by Warner Bros TV and Conan O’Brien’s Conaco, follows three nerdy female friends — Kimmie (Wilson), Helen-Alice (Slate) and Marika — on their “funcomfortable” quest to have super fun every Friday night. Helen-Alice is Kimmie’s super-smart best friend and roommate who thinks the pinnacle of fun is staying in on Friday nights to eat pizza and watch dorky movies. Slate, repped by WME and 3 Arts, recurred on Bored To Death and most recently voiced a character in Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.
