TVLine Items: FX Eyes Jenny Slate Show, Chev & Bev Adds Hellcat & More

Jenny Slate Married Season 2

Jenny Slate is over Married life.

The actress is shifting to recurring status for Season 2 of the FX comedy as she’s being eyed to star in her own pilot for the cable net, our sister site Deadline reports.

Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm, co-writers on the film Obvious Child, in which Slate starred, will pen the pilot.

Additionally, Sarah Burns (Enlightened) has joined Married as a regular, playing a quirky single mother whose desperate need for approval is always getting her into trouble.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Aly Michalka (Hellcats) — who recurs on The CW’s upcoming series iZombie — has boarded ABC’s comedy pilot Chev & Bev as the sourpuss daughter of Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo’s characters, per Deadline. 30 Rock alum Maulik Pancholy will play her medical student boyfriend.

* Nickelodeon has renewed the comedies Bella and the Bulldogs and The Thundermans for a second and third season, respectively.

* HBO is in talks with Apple to make Apple TV a launch partner for the April debut of its standalone streaming service HBO Now, International Business Times reports.

* Hulu’s original series Deadbeat will return for Season 2 on April 20, and it will feature guest stars James Franco (General Hospital), Danny DeVito (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Michael Ian Black (Burning Love), Zach Levi (Chuck) and Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story).

    It’s great that Slate is getting her own show, but her and Reiser were a great part of Married

    Glad Jenny is getting her own show. Gonna miss her on Married. Teaser for Deadbeat’s new season looks good. Can’t wait to see it!

    Maulik is way too old to be playing her boyfriend. Also why would he be in med school at his age?
