ABC Cancels SUPER FUN NIGHT & SUBURGATORY
Super Fun Night is officially over.
According to Deadline, ABC has pulled the plug on the comedy vehicle for up-and-comer Rebel Wilson, along with SUBURGATORY. The network previously announced it would not be renewing the critically acclaimed TROPHY WIFE, THE NEIGHBORDS, or MIXOLOGY.
Rebel Wilson ("Pitch Perfect," "Bridesmaids") writes and stars in an outrageous new comedy about what happens when you decide to live life outside your comfort zone.
For the last 13 years, Kimmie Boubier and her two best friends and roommates, Helen-Alice and Marika, have lived a sheltered life. Instead of going out on the weekends, they've had a standing date every Friday night. So while everyone around them is getting married and moving on (most painfully, at least to Kimmie, her younger sister, who just got engaged), all they have is each other and their "Super Fun Night" tradition.
That is, until junior attorney Kimmie gets a big promotion at her NYC law firm. Kimmie's moving on up at work (literally, to the 28th floor). There's her "frenemy" Kendall, a rival lawyer she's known since college. They'll clash on the job and after hours. She also meets handsome British attorney Richard Royce, the son of the firm's senior partner, who she thinks might be attracted to her, especially after he mentions that he likes girls with a "bit of chunk." It seems that suddenly Kimmie's whole life is opening up, but Helen-Alice and Marika are worried she'll leave them behind. Can Kimmie convince them that life isn't just for the pretty and the popular, and that it's time these three friends put themselves out there? And maybe even get a date? Future adventures will find the BFFs attempting a group date with some guys in their apartment building, and putting an end to "Cookie Prom." Kimmie will face off with Kendall in a dueling piano "sing off," and grow closer to Richard as they form a special friendship.
"Super Fun Night" stars Rebel Wilson as Kimmie Boubier, Liza Lapira ("Don't Trust the B- in Apartment 23") as Helen-Alice, Lauren Ash ("Lars and the Real Girl") as Marika, Kevin Bishop ("Star Stories") as Richard Royce and Kate Jenkinson ("The Wedge") as Kendall.
"Super Fun Night" was written by Rebel Wilson, who also serves as co-executive producer. Executive producers are John Riggi ("30 Rock"), who also directed the pilot, Conan O'Brien, David Kissinger and Jeff Ross. "Super Fun Night" is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Conaco and Warner Bros. Television. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1-channel surround sound.
