Yeah gurl! You deserve all this!
Melissa Mccarthy wasn't about to just let herself ONLY win an Emmy, so she went on to sell a sitcom to CBS after the win! Such good news!
The actress best known for her role in 'Mike & Molly' and recent starring appearance in 'Bridesmaid', sold her first pilot script the night of the Emmys. MCCarthy and writer husband Ben Falcone will debut their multi-camera comedy project on Cbs, with Warner Brothers TV producing the show. The husband-wife team will co-write and co-executive produce the sitcom about "about a woman in her mid-40s who has a spectacular midlife crisis".
She had to beat out Amy Poehler, Edie Falco, and Laura Linney, who happen to be larger household names. But, we're glad she nabbed it and if we remember how awesome she is, our surprise turns into us saying, "Yeah, that makes sense!"
We're so happy for you, Melissa! We can't wait to see the new show!
