Emmy Success! Melissa Mccarthy Sells Sitcom After Win!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmy Poehler

Melissa Mccarthy Has Pure Talent

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!

    I don't know why everyone is thinking she only became an actress recently (i.e. since bridesmaids and Mike&Molly). She played Sookie St James on GIlmore Girls, for 7 years! She was fantastic there.

    She's glowing. I wonder if she is newly pregnant.

    Loved her on Gilmore Girls….That's why I started watching Mike and Molly. Love this show.

    Esin - Your an idiot. She is beautiful. Who cares about a few pounds!!!!
