EXCLUSIVE: Edi Patterson has landed the last lead in Rebel Wilson’s CBS comedy pilot Super Fun Night in what likely is the final major pilot casting this broadcast cycle. Written by and starring Wilson, Super Fun Night, from Warner Bros TV and Conan O’Brien’s Conaco, follows three nerdy female friends — Kimmie (Wilson), Helen-Alice (Jenny Slate) and Marika (Patterson) — on their “funcomfortable” quest to have super fun every Friday night. Patterson, repped by ICM and Parallel Entertainment, is a member of the Groundlings comedy troupe.
