Moving on to this month’s dead pilot! It’s called How To Be A Couple written by Naomi Ekperigin (The Standups on Netflix, Mythic Quest) & Andy Beckerman (The Pete Holmes Show). Naomi and Andy are the co-hosts of the fantastic Couples Therapy podcast. This is a very autobiographical pilot about Natalie and Sam, a bi-racial couple who are in a throuple with their careers. The pilot was sold to Comedy Central with Annie Mebane attached to showrun and executive produce. The project was originally developed by CBS TV Studios. Thanks for supporting our show! Enjoy!
