Hugh, Larry and Rachel are three actor/comedians still waiting for their big break, struggling to make a name for themselves in Hollywood while their friends achieve fame and fortune. They’re the Nobodies.
Trying to make it in Hollywood can be tough for struggling actors and comedians. One way for them to increase their level of fame is to try to call in favours from more-famous friends. That’s the scenario facing Hugh, Larry and Rachel, performers who are struggling to climb the Hollywood ladder and soar to loftier heights in the industry. So they’re going with the “ask a friend” route and are desperate to land one of their famous buddies for a film script they have developed that they hope can help them rise to fame.
Executive producers of the comedy series include Emmy-winning actress Melissa McCarthy and her husband, actor Ben Falcone, who guest-stars on the show.
TV Land has already confirmed a second season for the show.
“Picking up ‘Nobodies’ for season two was a no-brainer when all these extremely talented people are behind it,” said Keith Cox, president of development and production for TV Land. “It’s a bold, quirky, hilarious look at what happens when you will do or say anything to succeed in Hollywood.”
