FX Networks has officially ordered a comedy pilot co-created by Obvious Child’s duo Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm, starring Jenny Slate and Ari Graynor. The project is described as an honest comedy exploring the adult female friendship of two creative partners as they embark on a cross-country road trip. 

Slate and Graynor will star Lou and Viv, two gutsy born and raised New Yorkers who discover each other in their 30s, make a movie together, and jump into the great unknown of their next project: they find strength and vulnerability in each other, learning how to have a fight and somehow still get back in the car. It’s like Thelma and Louise — but nobody dies.
