Nasim Pedrad, late of SNL and, after that, Mulaney, has sold a comedy pilot to Fox, which is cool, not particularly exciting news, except for the fact that Pedrad will play a 14-year-old boy in it. The pilot’s written by Pedrad and Rob Rosell and called Chad: An American Boy. It follows a “14-year-old boy in the throes of adolescence who is tasked with being the man of the house.” If it gets picked up, Chad will be a rare chance to see a Middle-Eastern family on TV, and even rarer chance to see an actress portray a teenage boy that isn’t animated. Still, Pedrad has the bona fides. Have you seen her Aziz Ansari?
