Written and executive produced by Wilson and Raphael, Unhinged focuses on April Hansen, a suburban, middle-aged woman with a problem. A rage problem. She’s tired of leaning in and playing nice and being told she can have it all. She knows it’s not attractive for a woman to be angry. And she’s angry about that. April Hansen has become…unhinged.
The project is being developed as a potential vehicle for Wilson who would star as April. Riggi serves as executive producer and will showrun.
Wilson and Raphael, who met at NYU, are longtime writing and stage partners and best friends. They have performed together at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, co-wrote the feature Bride Wars and wrote and starred in the Sundance film Ass Backwards. As an actress, Happy Endings, SNL and Marry Me alumna Wilson recently recurred on Tig Notaro’s Amazon series One Mississippi. Raphael recently recurred on Netflix series Grace and Frankie and Lady Dynamite. The duo are repped by UTA and attorney PJ Shapiro.
Riggi shared in three best comedy series Emmy during his stint as producer of 30 Rock. He currently has an untitled holiday project in development at Universal with Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions producing. He’s repped by UTA, Anonymous and attorney Sam Fischer.
