Ed Helms has had a busy schedule the last few years, getting a bigger piece on The Office's screentime post–Steve Carell, plus starring in a trilogy about being hungover. Now Helms will executive produce a single-camera comedy which has a script commitment over at ABC. The show comes from Mike Arnold, one of the writers on Archer, and picks up when "a brilliant, strong-willed attorney loses her fiancé and job at the city's top law firm" and "takes up with the scrappy, rival firm of misfits across the street."
