The single-camera project is based on a Douglas Coupland novel. Dick Wolf (Law & Order), Peter Jankowski (Law & Order) and Danielle Gelber (Chicago Fire) will exec-produce, with Liz Brixius (Nurse Jackie) producing and penning the project.

Earlier this season, Ricci guest-starred as a Sarah Silverman-like comedienne on CBS’ The Good Wife. She previously played head stewardess Maggie in ABC’s cancelled Pan Am.
