Ellie Kemper gets her own NBC pilot

May 9 update: NBC has passed on ‘Brenda Forever.’

From Entertainment Weekly:

Ellie Kemper has signed for the lead role in the NBC comedy pilot Brenda Forever. The flashback-filled pitch: “Stories from Brenda Miller’s past and present are interwoven to give a unique portrait of how a chubby, awkward, but incredibly confident 13-year-old grew up to be a 31-year-old woman who still marches to the beat of her own drum.”

Congratulations, Ellie!
