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.
