ABC is giving new life to “Super Fun Night,” a comedy pilot written by and starring “Bridesmaids” scene-stealer Rebel Wilson.
The show, about three geeky female friends and their quest to liven up their Friday nights, was in contention at CBS last pilot season (and was on Zap2it‘s list of pilots we hoped to see picked up). The network passed, but ABC took an interest over the summer and has now greenlit a new pilot, Deadline reports.
The show will get a pretty extensive revamping in its new home. It was shot as a multi-camera show at CBS, but the new version will be single-camera. Wilson’s friends, played by Jenny Slate and Edi Patterson in the first pilot, will be recast.
“Super Fun Night” also has a new showrunner in “30 Rock” and “Larry Sanders Show” veteran John Riggi. He takes over from Ted Cohen and Andrew Reich (“Friends,” “Work It”), who were signed only for the CBS pilot.
Wilson currently stars in the indie comedy “Bachelorette” and will next be seen in “Pitch Perfect,” which opens Sept. 28.
