It’s been a busy January for Wilson; earlier this month, NBC ordered The Mason Twins, a single-camera comedy pilot she penned with June Raphael (NTSF:SD:SUV::). That potential series follows fraternal twin sisters who, after being estranged for 15 years, reconnect when one’s perfect city life has fallen apart and she returns to her suburban hometown to find that her sister hasn’t matured past her teen-queen days.

    Simply a-mah-zing.

    It’s finally The Year of Penny you guys.

    • Hannah says:

      I’m confused, she has TWO pilots for NBC? Which one will she do if they both (unlikely) make it? The sisters one seems more original.

      • Rerwr says:

        She co-wrote the Mason Twins pilot (and another one at ABC called “Dinks” that hasn’t been given a pilot order so far) but isn’t acting in them. She probably made the right choice to act in this one since it sounds like this one has a more likely chance of getting ordered to series.

        From what I’ve heard, this is one of NBC’s hottest pilots this season, especially with David Caspe being in high demand by the networks after Happy Endings. Yes, HE didn’t get the biggest ratings, but was a cult hit, the kind of cult-y shows that usually have a better chance of surviving on NBC over the other network channels. And yes the plot synopsis to this one sounds a tad generic, but lets remember Happy Endings original premise sounded pretty generic on paper as well and then ended up being one of the funniest shows on tv.

    This show is NOT going to suuck.

  5. Ray says:

    Happy for Casey and David Caspe but I’m still not over the cancelation of Happy Endings. How could all those cable networks have passed up on such comedic genius?

    • MY says:

      Agree 1000%. When I read that USA wanted to venture into original programming I thought: that’s a terrible reason not to pick up this genius show. It’s been around 8 months since they cancelled HE and I still feel physical pain whenever I think about it.

  6. Herdat says:

    Casey Wilson and David Caspe should be the next great COMEDY POWERCOUPLE!

  7. Am I the only one who feels like the cast from Happy Endings just went on separate vacations and will eventually reunite?

  8. Joey says:

    Great news she’ll star in the show! Hope some other Happy Endings co-stars will star on the show as well.

  9. Charlotte says:

    One down, five to go.

    • Steven says:

      Eliza Coupe has been cast in Benched on USA as a regular and I wouldn’t be surprised if Damon Waynes Jr gets upgraded to a Series Regular on New Girl next season. Plus Adam Pally is currently on Mindy Project, but that probably won’t make it to next season.

    Best news ever!!

  11. Troy says:

    From the makers of Happy Endings and it stars Casey Wilson??? This is already my favorite show and it hasnt even been made yet.

  12. schu says:

    Woohoo! Happy she’ll be back on tv again! Hoping for the best for both her shows!
