The single-camera comedy revolves around an introverted, neurotic Wisconsin family that lives in a community of oversharers.

Kinsey will play Gail Gabriel, the wife to Ken (Rob Riggle), who is the more mature of the two -- but just barely. She's described as being clueless and off-beat (like her husband) who is trying to build her practice as a therapist and who unwillingly makes her patients feel like crap.

The League's Justin Hurwitz and The Last Exorcism Part II's Andrew Gurland will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy from 20th Television. Tim Meadows, Sara Sevigny, Brooke Sorenson and River Alexander co-star in the pilot, which has now completed casting.

Repped by UTA, Kritzer Levine and Felker Toczek, Kinsey becomes the latest Office alum to book her next gig ahead of the long-running comedy's series finale. Ellie Kemper will star in NBC's comedy pilot Brenda Forever. Co-star Craig Robinson will star and produce an untitled comedy pilot at NBC with The Office's Owen Ellickson and Greg Daniels, the latter of whom also has another untitled entry set up at the network with fellow Office EP Robert Padnick. For his part, David Denman will co-star on CBS' Beverly Hills Cop.
