Kudrow, who previously gained acclaim for her HBO sitcom 'The Comeback', will co-produce the series alongside Dan Bucatinsky, though it has yet to be announced whether she will star in the series as well. The pair will be joined by frequent collaborator Don Roos, who will direct the series and who teamed with Kudrow and Bucatinsky for the upcoming NBC series 'Who Do You Think You Are?', which chronicles celebrities investigating their family roots.
