'BFF': NBC pairs Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham, hopes for laughs
NBC has given the green light to "BFF" for the 2011-2012 primetime lineup. Though the show hasn't yet been given a slot, we expect it to hit the schedule sometime in early 2012.
The sitcom pairs Jessica St. Clair (as Jessica) and Lennon Parham (as Lennon) as both co-creators and co-stars. Yep, it's one of those shows where the characters have the same name as their real-life counterparts. Which we're sure helps for running lines, but unless you're Larry David we're wary of the gimmick.
St. Clair most recent appeared in the just-opened chick comedy flick "Bridesmaids." She's guested on Showtime's "Weeds," but got her start as a correspondent for shows like "The Smoking Gun TV" and "The Colin Quinn Show." Parham is a "Funny or Die?" regular who has also made the guest rounds ("Parks and Recreation," "How I Met Your Mother").
Another interesting factoid: Former kid actor Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years") directed the pilot. Neat.
