A NORMAL GUY, WHOSE LIFE IS ONE BIG PUNCHLINE
ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF NEW COMEDY "MULANEY"
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, ON FOX
MULANEY stars Emmy Award-winning writer and comedian John Mulaney ("Saturday Night Live") as a rising stand-up comic trying to take his career to the next level, and the friends and mentors who lift him up, hold him back and push him around. The multi-camera sitcom boasts a cast of comedy all-stars, including Martin Short ("SCTV," "Saturday Night Live,") and Academy Award nominee Elliott Gould ("M*A*S*H," the "Ocean's 11" franchise), Nasim Pedrad ("Saturday Night Live"), comedian Seaton Smith ("Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell") and Zack Pearlman ("The Inbetweeners"). In the Series Premiere, JOHN (Mulaney) gets a job writing comedy for demanding and infantile game show host LOU CANNON (Short), which turns out to be less glamourous than expected. Meanwhile John's roommate, JANE (Pedrad), attempts to prove to an ex that she isn't "psycho"; and his other roommate, MOTIF (Smith), struggles to write a joke with a killer punchline in the "Pilot" episode of MULANEY airing Sunday, Oct. 5 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
