Per The Hollywood Reporter, Pedrad will play Jane, the female lead described as a sweet and intelligent but lazy and procrastination-prone grade school teacher who’s tired of her job and dying to make a change.
Comedy vets Martin Short and Elliott Gould round out the project’s previously announced cast.
Should NBC move forward with the series, Pedrad — who joined SNL in 2009 — will vacate her spot on the late-night staple.
Would you be sad to see Pedrad leave SNL? Which of her alter egos — Kim Kardashian, Arianna Huffington and Kelly Ripa, to name a few — would you miss most?
