Jenna Elfman has been tapped to star in Fox’s untitled comedy pilot produced by Dana Klein (Friends, Friends With Better Lives). The actress will play Ellen, a working mom who is in constant competition with her perfect, stay-at-home sister-in-law.
Klein, who will executive-produce alongside Aaron Kaplan (Mysteries of Laura), also will write the pilot.
After spending five years as one-half of ABC’s Dharma & Greg, Elfman’s recent TV credits include the short-lived comedies 1600 Penn and Growing Up Fisher which she starred opposite Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons. You can also check out her podcast that she and her husband have been doing since 2012 called Kicking and Screaming by Jenna and Bodhi Elfman where they discuss marriage, life and annoyance sparring no details.
