SNL Alumna Molly Shannon’s New Comedy Gig

Molly Shannon

Saturday Night Live alumna Molly Shannon has joined the cast for a new single-camera comedy in development with the FOX network written by Bruce McCulloch (Kids in the Hall) as reported by Deadline.

This new project will see Shannon play Fiona who, at the top of her professional career, clashes with her stay-at-home pregnant daughter.  This project is a reunion for Molly Shannon and Bruce McCulloch who worked together back in 1999 for the cult comedy Superstar in which McCulloch directed.

Shannon, no stranger to comedy, has appeared in Will & Grace, the US remake of Kath & Kim and took a dramatic turn for a guest gig in Hannibal.  Coming up next, Shannon will be seen in Rebel Wilson’s comedy Super Fun Night.
