Writer-producer Nina Pedrad has signed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios. Under the pact, Pedrad will serve as a co-executive producer on the second season of CBS All Access series No Activity, executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, in addition to developing new projects.
CBS All Access’ first original comedy series, No Activity is based on an Australian series, which was written and directed by Trent O’Donnell and starred Patrick Brammall. The duo developed the U.S. version, which stars Brammall and Tim Meadows.
In what should be a high-stakes sting operation, No Activity celebrates the mundane. Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met.
No Activity is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Funny Or Die, Jungle and Gary Sanchez Productions.
Most recently, Pedrad shot an FX comedy pilot which she co-wrote and co-starred in with Cristin Milioti through RGC Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
Pedrad previously was a Supervising Producer on NBC’s Will & Grace and Fox’s New Girl as well as a writer on NBC’s 30 Rock. She is repped by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
