    As of today she is working on two projects. Intercourse with Whitney Cummings


    DESCRIPTION:
    (from Comedy Central's press release, May 2010) From brash young comedienne Whitney Cummings ("Made of Honor," COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts), "Intercourse with Whitney Cummings" is a half-hour scripted narrative comedy that follows Cumming's adventures in dating and sex. Joining Whitney each week on her adventures will be her single, guy friend Neal, her married couple friends Dick and Jane, and her porn star neighbor Starla whose advice normally does more harm than good. With material taken from her stand-up act, Cumming's unique voice and brutally honest point of view of the dating landscape and relationships in general promises to make "Intercourse" a twisted "Sex and the City" for the new decade.

    Comedian Whitney Cummings — who has two, count 'em, two shows coming out this fall and television record keepers immediately wondered if such an alignment of stars had ever happened before. Ms. Cummings, a 28-year-old comedian, has been appearing on Comedy Central and "Chelsea Lately" on E!, but now, suddenly, she is producing and starring in a show on one major network and producing a show on another. Both of Ms. Cummings's projects are multicamera comedies with live studio audiences.


    Whitney's words about her show Whitney (staring in) on NBC:


    "Shalom. So, folks. Hi. I'm very happy to announce that I'll have a sitcom on NBC this fall based on my stand up. It's a sitcom based on me and what goes on in my head so it's basically about balls and sex and that sort of dumbness. It will be on on Thursdays after the Office. It's very cool and I'm super proud of it."


    Whitney's is producing 2 Broke Girls on CBS:


    "highest-testing pilot we've ever had at CBS. Ever." - Nina Tassler, the CBS president of entertainment.


    about Whitney's involvement with 2 Broke Girls:


    she heard that Michael Patrick King, who wrote for and produced shows like "Murphy Brown" and "Sex and the City," was looking for a young, funny female writing partner for the sitcom idea that became "2 Broke Girls." They quickly paired up, "and she was instrumental in getting that show going," said Peter Roth, the chief executive of Warner Brothers Television, which is producing "2 Broke Girls." Laughing
