The Favorite centers on a woman who comes home for a visit to help her siblings with their aging parents and ends up moving in to care for them full time. A comedic examination of the tricky but ultimately rewarding relationship between adult children and their parents, one of the rarely discussed best parts of getting older.

Krafft executive produces with Kaplan and Dana Honor.

Prior to that, she was a consulting producer on Comedy Central’s Another Period and FX’s The Comedians. She also wrote on Robin Williams’ CBS series The Crazy Ones and Larry Wilmore’s Showtime specials, developed The Jenny Slate Show for Comedy Central and was one of the original writers on The Colbert Report. She began her career in Chicago at the Second City and Improv Olympic theaters.

Krafft is represented by WME and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
