The Bridesmaids duo has teamed up with bosses at U.S. network TV Land for a comedy called Friends With Melissa.

The show is inspired by their pals, writers Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras, who worked with MCCarthy and Falcone in sketch comedy troupe The Groundlings, but as MCCarthy and Falcone's careers began to skyrocket, the trio made ends meet by writing for children's television.

MCCarthy, who is preparing to head back to her Emmy Award-winning role in sitcom Mike & Molly, is set to appear in the pilot episode, and she and her husband will executive produce the project.
