Chelsea Lately regular Jen Kirkman lands script deal with FX

Chelsea Lately regular Jen Kirkman has landed a script deal with FX for Jen, a half-hour comedy written by and — if picked up — starring the stand-up comedian. The show would be set in Boston and would center on a woman in her mid-30s who is newly divorced and doesn’t want kids. The semi-autobiographical project would be close in theme to Kirkman’s best-selling book I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales from a Happy Life Without Kids.
