TVLine Items: SNL Vets Re-Team for HBO Comedy, Katt Williams Netflix Trailer and More

Saturday Night Live veterans Molly Shannon and Steve Koren (Superstar, A Night at the Roxbury) are again joining forces for a new comedy currently in development at HBO, our sister site Deadline reports.

Koren will pen the project starring Shannon as a woman deeply addicted to celebrity news and gossip who finally agrees to get help after her friends and family stage an intervention. But she checks into a fancy celebrity rehab center in Malibu, which she treats more like a stay at the Four Seasons rather than a place to confront her demons.

“Once there, she connects with her favorite young starlet and must decide whether to return to her family or join her in Hollywood,” per Deadline’s description.
