Natasha Leggero, Riki Lindhome Headed to Comedy Central
Laughspin.com reported Ben Stiller’s Red Hour production company came to a deal with Comedy Central regarding future programming. According to the website, Comedy Central greenlit a pilot from comedians Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome titled Another Period.
The show will be a mockumentary-reality show that follows the lives of Leggero and Lindhome as victorian-era heiresses, living in 1902. The two will play siblings, Lillian (Leggero) and Beatrice (Lindhome) who are beyond wealthy, but only care about parties, their image and becoming famous in the early 1900’s. As a fan of this comedic duo already, I’m pleased to say that brining their talents to a show that’s basically Jersey Shore meets Downton Abbey, sounds like the best idea for an original show in a long time. Cheers to hoping people still “fist pumped” 110 years ago!
