Comedy Central Orders Pilot and Stand-Up Special from Natasha Leggero

2014 is already looking pretty good for comedian Natasha Leggero. The frequent Chelsea Lately and @midnight panelist has gotten the go-ahead this week from Comedy Central to film both a sitcom pilot and an hour-long stand-up special, Deadline reports.

The pilot, titled Another Period, is a reality show spoof starring Leggero and Riki Lindhome (of Garfunkel and Oates fame) as vapid, Edwardian-era heiresses. Set in 1902, the potential comedy series will follow party girls Lillian and Beatrice Bellacourt, members of a family “with nothing to offer the world, but who have so much money that it doesn’t matter.” Drunk History creator Jeremy Konner is set to direct.

Leggero’s stand-up special is set to be filmed in April at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre.
