• Natasha Leggero, Morgan Murphy developing Ratchet at CBS

    Another period might begin for Natasha Leggero at CBS. Leggero is writing Ratchet with comedian Morgan Murphy. The multi-camera comedy centers on Jessica Ratchet, played by Leggero, who must start a new life and make new friends after her rich fiancé dies suddenly, leaving her to fend for herself.

    Leggero is poised to wrap her Comedy Central series Another Period in 2019. Ratchet gives her a chance to continue leading a series as an actor. Her Netflix special, The Honeymoon Stand-Up Special, turned heads with its alternative format. She and her husband, Moshe Kasher, each did a half-hour of stand-up. Then the two share the stage as they invite couples on stage from the audience to roast their relationships. Part-stand-up, part-roast the special deviated from the typical comedy special.

    Murphy is also shopping working on Danny Issues, a sitcom she is co-writing with Michelle Nader, which received a put pilot commitment over at Fox. Most recently, she was a writer on the ABC Roseanne revival. Before that, she served a long stint writing for the CBS hit 2 Broke Girls.
