Melissa McCarthy Teams Up With The Help Director For Comedy

Bridesmaids and Mike And Molly star Melissa McCarthy will teams up with The Help director Tate Taylor for a new comedy called Tammmy.

The pair know each other as they ware both alummi of the improvisational comedy troupe, The Groundlings.

The script is written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone (memorably an air marshall in Bridesmaids) centers on an overweight woman who loeses her job at Hardee’s (a fast food American restaurant chain), discovers her husband is having an affair and naturally decides to go on a road-trip with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic grandmother.
