McCarthy Sells “Tammy” To New Line

“Mike & Molly” star and “Bridesmaids” scene stealer Melissa McCarthy has sold her raunchy road trip comedy script “Tammy” to New Line says The Hollywood Reporter.

McCarthy would also star in and exec produce the story of an overweight woman who is laid off from her job, discovers her husband is having an affair, and decides to go on a road trip with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic grandmother.

This is not to be confused with their a comedy project about a woman having a mid-life crisis McCarthy sold to CBS, or the Stanley Cup heist-themed comedy she and Annie Mumolo co-wrote which is set up at Paramount.
