Written and executive produced by the pair, the untitled project is described as a dirty, female-driven take on the “you can’t go home again” story following Ali, an unrelentingly dissatisfied TV writer who returns to her hometown in rural Pennsylvania to live “the simple life.” Upright Citizens Brigade alumna Bennett hails from a town in Central Pennsylvania where, by her own account, “federal prison inmates staged a haunted house for the public every year.”
The comedy falls under the overall deal Falk recently signed to develop and produce projects for FX Networks and FX Prods. and follows FXX’s third-season renewal of You’re The Worst, which he created and executive produces. Bennett has written episodes of the series, on which she is an executive story editor. Her other TV writing credits include Hey Girl and The Awesomes.
Bennett and Falk are repped by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman.
