Georgetown native inks pilot deal for CBS

Whitney Cummings, the 28-year-old comedian who's made a name for herself on "Chelsea Lately" and the Comedy Central roasts, landed a pilot production commitment with CBS last week, Deadline Hollywood reported Friday.

I wrote about her -- and her Washington roots -- on Thursday.

She will co-executive produce a pilot called "Two Broke Girls" with Michael Patrick King, the creator of "Sex and the City." It will be a half-hour show (taped in front of a live audience) about two young women living in New York City with little money: One short on cash her whole life, the other a pampered Upper East Side girl whose family loses everything.

"I wanted to do something that felt real and grounded," Cummings writes in an e-mail. "In most shows money is never an issue, but in this one it's the main issue."

A pilot production commitment doesn't mean the series itself will be produced, or that the pilot will even air. But working and writing with King, Cummings says, has been "surreal. He's basically my hero and has been the main inspiration for a lot of my work."
