• Emily Heller, NBC team up to form Secret Society

    NBC is developing a secret society—and comedian Emily Heller is its leader. NBC called dibs on Secret Society from Heller, as well as fellow executive producers Kay Cannon and Laverne McKinnon.

    Written by Heller, Secret Society centers on Beth, a struggling reporter who is tired of feeling invisible in her small town and recruits other women to help take over a dying branch of an all-male secret society.

    Heller, whose stand-up album Pasta dropped last year, is currently a producer on HBO’s surprise hit Barry. She’s also written on People of Earth and Crowded.

    Cannon is the creator of Girlboss and made her directorial debut with Blockers last year. McKinnon, a Girlboss executive producer, is one half of K&L Productions with Cannon.
