EXCLUSIVE: FX Networks has given a pilot order to Man Seeking Woman, a half-hour comedy pilot from former Saturday Night Live writer/humorist/novelist Simon Rich and Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video. The project, based on Rich’s book The Last Girlfriend On Earth, is described as a sweet, surreal, and bitingly funny look at the life and death stakes of dating in New York City. Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, SNL) is set to direct the pilot from a script by Rich. The two are executive producing with Broadway Video for FX Prods. If Man Seeking Woman goes to series, it will make 28-year-old Rich one of the youngest series creators ever. He already became the youngest writer in the history of SNL, where he spent four seasons, from 2007 to 2011 before segueing to a writing job at Pixar studios.

If you’re looking for a little humor, romance, and horror in your day, you might want to give actors Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza four-minutes of your time.

This latest short is directed by Cera himself and is entitled “Failure.” It follows a young man (played by Cera) discovering a woman (Plaza) in his house. All she wants to do is “meet him” and while Plaza isn’t immediately threatening, containing herself to Cera’s staircase, you can’t help but feel just as unsettled by her as Cera’s character is; I blame those big eyes of Plaza’s. But all’s well that ends well and despite its creepy origins, it ends with the possibility of romance. Check it out below. [HitFix]
