Described as a single-camera comedy, the show will revolve around two under-employed New Yorkers trying to make it in the big city.
Cummings wrote the pilot and is to executive produce with Sex & The City‘s Michael Patrick King.
Dennings, who has appeared in movies such as Charlie Bartlett, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and The House Bunny, has worked with King before having landed her break as an actress playing a precocious 13-year-old in a 2000 episode of Sex & The City.
She will next be seen on the big screen in Thor.
James Burrows – a co-creator of Cheers – will direct the Two Broke Girls having previously also helmed pilots for Will & Grace, The Big Bang Theory and Two & A Half Men.
