Cindy Caponera, who has written and produced episodes of “Saturday Night Live” and is the author of the humorous essay book “I Triggered Her Bully,” has been hired as co-executive producer and writer on the TBS comedy “Ground Floor.”

The multicamera series, created by Bill Lawrence and Greg Malins, has been renewed for a second season, slated to premiere in late 2014.  The show stars Skylar Astin and Briga Heelan.

Caponera’s credits also include “Shameless “and “Nurse Jackie.”

“I Triggered Her Bully,” a collection of essays about Caponera’s time growing up on the Southside of Chicago and how that experience has shaped her life as an actress, writer and producer, will be available in paperback on May 9.

Caponera is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Bruce Gellman.
