Rob McElhenney-Rob Rosell Fox Comedy Pilot Signs Kaitlin Olson To Cast

Posted by at 3:00 pm on August 2, 2018

Kaitlin Olson could be back in the Fox fold. Olson, who starred in the recently canceled Fox single-cam comedy The Mick, has been cast in a lead role in the untitled Rob McElhenney-Rob Rosell multi-cam pilot currently in the works at the network.

Olson joins previously announced cast member Leah Remini. The series follows Jean (Remini), who considers herself a patriot who loves her country and firmly believes in everyone’s right to be left alone. Jean in many ways fits the stereotype of a typical conservative. However, she leads a very progressive lifestyle as she is now married to a woman, Birdie (Olson). Together they’re raising Jean’s two boys with the help of the boys’ father and Jean’s ex-husband, Richie, who currently lives in the garage.

In addition to starring in The Mick, Olson is also one of the stars of the long-running FXX comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which McElhenney co-created and on which Rosell previously served as a writer and executive producer. Her character name in the Fox pilot is also no doubt a nod to her It’s Always Sunny Character Dee Reynolds, who is often described as looking like a bird by the other characters on the show. Olson and McElhenney are also married, having met on It’s Always Sunny and tying the knot in 2008.
