Remember that show BFFs on NBC? It starred real life best friends Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Claire, and it was hilarious. Well, those two had babies, and now they’re back with their own sitcom about life as a mom on USA network! The cast list is incredible. They got stars from The Office, Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Malcolm in the Middle, Arrested Development, and Key and Peele!

On the subject of gathering such a talented group of comedians, Jessica said, “We had babies and we were exhausted, so we decided to cast the funniest improvisors we could so we didn’t have to do so much work.” She’s totally right, too, because these people work together like geniuses. But Malcolm in the Middle star Jane Kaczmarek says these two BFFs don’t really need much help in the writing department. In fact, Jane said the main reason she joined was because the scripts were so hilarious to begin with!

And even better, you should see the set these ladies designed. It’s built on the old 3rd Rock set. For the planning stage, Lennon and Jessica put together Pintrest boards of all their fantasy dream house ideas, and then they let designers bring them to life! Wouldn’t that be so fun if that happened at your house?

The other thing that blew us away was the fact that these mamas are living their dreams and doing it all. There’s a nursery room on set, where moms on the cast can pump, hang with their babies, and even take a little nap if necessary. They also get to write, act, direct, promote, and live their best lives while nurturing their families. We’re more than a little inspired by that.

Write it on your calendar: Playing House, April 29th, 10:00 pm on USA. You’re going to love this!
