Nasim Pedrad Will Play a 14-Year Old Boy In Her New Show
SNL alum Nasim Pedrad just sold a pilot to Fox that has her playing a 14-year old boy.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Chad: An American Boy is about “a 14-year-old boy in the throes of adolescence who is tasked with being the man of the house, which leaves him with all the responsibilities of being an adult without any of the perks.” Pedrad hilariously added:
“I’m thrilled to be able to portray a Middle Eastern family not working for or against Jack Bauer on network TV. Also, a big thank you to Fox for understanding that my true essence is that of an awkward and misguided 14-year-old boy.”
She’s fresh off of a really weird stint on Scream Queens, where she played an 80s obsessed former sorority girl, and the quickly canceled 2014 sitcom Mulaney. I hope that Chad gives Pedrad more room to shine.
