Rachel Dratch has joined the cast of the pilot for Lady Friends, a multicamera comedy for NBC, TV Guide reports. The show, from The New Adventures of Old Christine creator Kari Lizer, is about two besties — one successful and perfect (Better Off Ted's Andrea Anders), the other less so — whose lives change when one gets married. Dratch will play one of their other friends who's "a little bit worse off in every way" than the less-together of the central pair. Just as long as it's not a whacky-neighbor sort of role. Rachel Dratch deserves better than that.
