The show is being executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and will mark Christina‘s first major TV role in six years. It’s also a mini-reunion: Christina worked with Will and Adam in the Anchorman films.

The 10-episode half-hour series will “center on a powerful friendship that blossoms between a tightly wound widow, Jen (Applegate), and a free spirit with a shocking secret.”

Jen is “a poised and put-together woman with a dark sense of humor and an anger problem that she doesn’t necessarily want to deal with. She’s been struggling to keep it together in the months since her husband was killed in a hit-and-run accident.”

Filming is set to begin this fall in Los Angeles.
