NBC Gives Pilot Orders To Comedies ‘Mason Twins’ & ‘A To Z’

NBC has given pilot orders to two more comedies: Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael’s Mason Twins and Ben Queen/Le Train Train’s A To Z.

Single-camera Mason Twins, from ABC Studios, is written/exec produced by Wilson and Raphael and exec produced by Stacy Traub who supervised the script. Having been estranged for 15 years, fraternal twins Pender and Lizzie Mason reconnect after Lizzie’s perfect city life has fallen apart, and she returns to her suburban town to find that her sister hasn’t matured past her teen queen days. The project NBC_logostems from the deal Happy Endings and SNL alumna Wilson and Raphael inked with ABC Studios in August. The duo also has DINKS, a half-hour with Jonathan Groff, at ABC with a pilot production commitment. Wilson and Raphael, who met in a clown class 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 film Ass Backwards.
