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. Rich, son of former New York columnist Frank Rich, was still an undergraduate at Harvard, where he edited The Harvard Lampoon, when he landed a two-book deal at Random House, with his first book, Ant Farm: And Other Desperate Situations, getting nominated for the Thurber Prize for American Humor. His first novel, Elliot Allagash, was optioned by Jason Reitman. The Last Girlfriend on Earth, Rich’s fifth book, was published in January. Man Seeking Woman joins two other comedy pilots ...

Listen, it's not like Kanye West needs any more press for his new album, Yeezus, which just dropped yesterday. Talk of the record is all over the place, and the fact that he and Kim Kardashian welcomed a baby girl just three days before it was released only helped matters. OK! News: Kanye West's Best Lyrics About Being a Dad But leave it to Kanye to think of a weird, albeit genius way to get the word out even more. He recruited two people from girlfriend Kim's inner circle—her best friend Jonathan Cheban and Kourtney's boyfriend, Scott Disick—and filmed a remake of the classic film American Psycho. Maybe Jonathan and Scott should take up acting next? Because this skit is actually pretty awesome. And clearly the Kanye tunes playing in the background are amazing, too. OK!
