USA orders pilot presentation from Lennon Parham & Jessica St. Clair

Deadline February 15, 2013
USA Orders Jessica St. Clair/Lennon Parham Comedy Presentation
by Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: USA has given a pilot presentation order to a single-camera comedy written by and starring Upright Citizens Brigade alums Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, the duo behind NBC’s Best Friends Forever. The Office‘s Zach Woods is eyed for another role in the project, directed by Jeffrey Blitz whose credits include The Office and Parks & Recreation. Like BFF, which also started as a presentation, the untitled USA project will be produced by Scot Armstrong and Ravi Nandan’s American Work. Universal Cable Prods. is the studio.

Based on the ultra-close friendship between Jessica St. Clair & Lennon Parham, the comedy is about what happens when single parent Lennon calls on her best friend, Jessica, single and career-focused, to help her raise her new baby. It’s a buddy comedy about two best friends who reunite just when they need each other most. Parham, St. Clair, Armstrong and Nandan are all exec producing.

The St. Clair/Parham presentation joins two single-camera comedy USA pilots which had been awaiting word on their fate -- Paging Dr. Freed and Sirens.
