‘It’s Always Sunny’ Star Kaitlin Olson to Topline Fox Pilot ‘The Mick’

Kaitlin Olson will star in Fox comedy pilot “The Mick,” Variety has learned.

Should the pilot go to series, Olson would star on both “The Mick” and FX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which has been renewed for its 12th season at FX.

From writers John Chernin and Dave Chernin, “The Mick” revolves around a hard-living, foul mouthed woman — played by Olson — who moves to affluent Greenwich, Connecticut, to raise the spoiled kids of her wealthy sister, who has fled the country to avoid a federal indictment.

The single-cam, female-led comedy hails from 20th Century Fox TV. The Chernins will exec produce with Nick Frenkel, Oly Obst and Randall Einhorn, who will direct the pilot.

Olson is repped by UTA.
