Emmy Winner Jane Curtin Boards Fox's 48 Hours 'Til Monday Comedy Pilot

Jane Curtin Fox Pilot

Fresh off her wonderfully received Saturday Night Live anniversary special appearance, two-time Emmy winner Jane Curtin has been tapped to crack wise on the Fox pilot 48 Hours ‘Til Monday.

Penned by onetime SNL scribe Charlie Grandy (who most recently has written for The Mindy Project), the single-camera comedy follows one husband’s (Rob Riggle) desperate struggle to not let every weekend go completely to hell. Because apparently that’s the premise for a TV series.

Curtin will play Louise, the aforementioned husband’s mother-in-law, who is currently living (and smoking cigarettes) with her own spouse Doug at their daughter Kelly’s house. When enlisted to babysit, Louise has a more relaxed attitude towards child-rearing, and thus has no problem leaving her three grandchildren alone while she and Doug walk to the MiniMart.

Curtin’s recent TV credits include the pilot for TNT’s The Librarians and CBS’ Unforgettable.

    Love her…. not so much the creator of the show, or the premise.

    I was just saying earlier today how I hope to see more of the classic SNL players. The premise of this show doesn’t read that well, but who knows? I’m just glad for some more Jane Curtin.

  3. Steven says:

    I grew up watching Jane on 3rd Rock and she’s hilarious. So I’m in. What does this mean for the new season of Unforgettable though?

    Matt, I’m kind of shocked you didn’t mention her role on 3rd Rock From The Sun.

  6. Rockell says:

    Sounds a bit like Super Fun Night for guys.

  7. DavidSask says:

    Very similar sounding to Raising Hope!

    This is awesome news, SNL 40 proved that she’s still super funny. I’m only 20 but if we’re being honest, I still have a bit of a crush on her.
