Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair Are Making a New Show Together for USA


Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, stars and creators of last season’s short-lived but critically-acclaimed NBC comedy Best Friends Forever, are moving to cable for their new show. Deadline reports that USA has ordered a pilot presentation (a.k.a. short pilot) written by and starring Parham and St. Clair. The untitled project is a comedy about a single mother (Parham) calling on her career-driven best friend (St. Clair) to help her raise her kid. The Office’s Zach Woods, who started his career performing improv with Parham and St. Clair at the UCB Theatre in New York, is being eyed for a supporting role. Woods recently signed on to star in Mike Judge’s tech industry comedy pilot Silicon Valley alongside T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, and Kumail Nanjiani. If Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair’s show and the Adam McKay/Will Ferrell-produced late night morning show both get picked up, the USA Network could become a major force in the comedy world in the next year.
