NBC Orders a Pilot from Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael

Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael, the IRL BFF comedy team responsible for 2013′s Ass Backwards (AN UNDERRATED GEM), have landed a pilot order from NBC for their sitcom Mason Twins. According to The Hollywood Reporter the show center around “fraternal twins Pender and Lizzie Mason” who “after having been estranged for 15 years…reconnect after Lizzie’s perfect city life falls apart and she returns to her suburban town to discover that her sister hasn’t matured beyond her teen queen days.”
I think the only thing that could make this pilot more promising is if it were about identical twins. I am unreasonably drawn to identical twins, like a moth to a monozygotic flame. I just have so many questions for them, which of which are unanswered mysteries from The Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley.
As Raphael is already set to star in the pair’s ABC show DINKS (which landed a pilot production commitment), she won’t be appearing in Mason Twins. There has been no word on whether Wilson will feature in this new project or co-star with her writing partner in DINKS.
