Anna Faris Is Mom

Anna Faris is going to make a TV show! Now the bad news - it's from the creator of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, two shows that make me break out in hives with their total and complete unfunniness. Urgh. Via TV Line:

"One of pilot season’s hottest properties is officially off the market. Anna Faris has landed the title role in CBS’ Chuck Lorre-produced multi-camera comedy pilot Mom, TVLine has learned. The actress — whose film credits include The Dictator, The House Bunny and the Scary Movie franchise — will play a newly sober single mom who tries to pull her life together in the Napa Valley. Lorre co-wrote the Mom script with his Two and a Half Men colleagues Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker. If Mom gets a green light (and if Two and a Half Men returns for an 11th season, as many expect it will) that would bring to four the number of shows Lorre will have on the air next fall, joining the already renewed The Big Bang Theory and sure thing Mike & Molly."

Maybe it's good news, in that the network will presumably push a lot of money at something Lorre does, and Anna will be successful for once? I keep wishing that her movie career would be all I want it to be, but it just doesn't seem to be happening. I can only watch The House Bunny and Smiley Face so many times, ya know? (That is a lie - there is no end to how many times I can watch those movies.)
