Cue Kristen Wiig’s infamous Bridesmaids scene: “Who’s ready to partayyyyyy?”
We are *so* ready, thanks to the revelation that Wiig will star in and executive produce a new comedy series for the small screen based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s upcoming short-story collection You Think It, I’ll Say It. The show, which was picked up by Apple and is also executive produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine content company, has been ordered for ten half-hour episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This will be Witherspoon’s third series with Apple. The other two, one starring Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston about the drama of morning talk show hosts, and another titled Are You Sleeping starring Octavia Spencer, will join Apple’s other two scripted shows that are currently in the works.
We repeat: a comedy show from Witherspoon starring Kristen Wiig and inspired by Curtis Sittenfeld. You had us at Hello (Sunshine).
