AMERICAN PIE's Natasha Lyonne has signed on to star in Fox's upcoming, though still untitled, half-hour comedy revolving around two siblings. The project is written by MR. SUNSHINE creators Alex Barnow and Marc Firek.
The show follows Stella (Lyonne) who has just completed a stint in rehab, and without any other options, moves in with her consertative brother and his family.
3 Arts will produce with Sony Pictures TV, where Barnow and Firek recently signed an overall deal. Barnow and Firek are set to executive produce with Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry. Lyonne will also produce.
The untitled project is set to be Lyonne's first starring role on television. She recently completed a gig on Jenji Kohan's ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, a dark comedy which will be available on Netflix in 2013.
No additional casting or production dates have been announced for the series. BWW TV World will keep you updated as one of Fox's newest comedies develops.
