Abby Elliott Lands Lead in Fox Pilot
Deadline is reporting that Abby Elliott has landed the lead in a new Fox pilot, Ben Fox Is My Manny. Penned by Dana Fox (What Happens in Vegas), Ben Fox Is My Manny centres on an uptight single mother (Elliott) whose slacker brother moves in with her to help raise her daughter. The question on everybody's lips is what this means for Elliott's future on SNL. Deadline reports that if the pilot gets picked up to series, Elliott will leave the late-night comedy show. If not, it is likely she will stay on. Elliott has been with SNL since '08.
