There’s a lot of Whitney Cummings around US TV at the moment. Best known from Chelsea Lately, not only does she have her own show on NBC – the eponymous Whitney – she’s the exec producer and co-creator of 2 Broke Girls, a supposed comedy about two waitresses who decide to run their own cupcake business – once they have enough money to quit their waitressing jobs, mind.
In case the mildly tepid Whitney hasn’t put you off the concept of a sitcom written by Whitney Cummings, here’s a little nugget of extra information that might sway you: it’s co-created and co-written by Michael Patrick King aka “The Man Who Ruined Sex and the City“.
So not funny in the slightest, but it does have two redeeming features: a relatively likeable pair of central characters; and Kat Dennings (Thor). But that’s it.
Here – try to laugh your way through this trailer.
