Story by Jack Foley
ANNA Faris has secured the lead in Chuck Lorre’s new half-hour comedy pilot Mom.
The comedy is the latest to emerge from the mind of the prolific producer behind Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot will follow the fortunes of a newly sober single mum as she attempts to put her life back in order in Napa Valley, in the heart of California’s wine region.
If picked up to a full series, the show would mark Faris’s first series regular gig following several episode arcs on series including Entourage and Friends.
Her big screen credits nclude THe House Bunny, My Super Ex-Girlfriend and, most recently, The Dictator.
