Kristen Wiig To Lead Apple’s First Comedy

In its first scripted comedy pickup, Apple has landed a ten-episode half-hour comedy series to be executive produced and star Kristen Wiig.

The series will be inspired by Curtis Sittenfeld’s upcoming short-story collection “You Think It, I’ll Say It” and hails from Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine company. No plot details are forthcoming.

Colleen McGuinness (“30 Rock”) created the series and serves as showrunner. Witherspoon, Wiig and Lauren Neustadter will executive produce though no studio is yet set up to make the project.
