ABC's "Super Fun Night" Premiere Pilot: Rebel Wilson Stars and Writes in New Sitcom [TRAILER] [LIVE ONLINE STREAM]

You may remember Rebel Wilson from the hit movie "Pitch Perfect" where she continued her Hollywood attack as Fat Amy and stole the show. Her Hollywood debut in "Bridesmaids" was just as hilarious. She is now writing and starring in her new show "Super Fun Night," which premieres tonight on ABC at 9:30 PM EST. The pilot tonight features a great cast, such as Kevin Bishop and Kate Jenkinson. Wilson will play a socially sheltered and somewhat insecure woman named Kimmie who always wants to host a super fun night every Friday so she doesn't have to go out and be social at the bars.


The Daily Beast wrote, "The show centers around Kimmie Boubier (Wilson), a lawyer whose career takes off so she figures it's about time her social life does, too. That social has, for the past 13 years, consisted of staying at home with her two introverted, odd-ball roommates (Liza Lapira and Lauren Ash). After being promoted at work, Kimmie decides it's time to take their "super fun night" out on the town, with each episode depicting the ensuing social trainwreck.


Will Rebel Wilson deliver in her new TV show "Super Fun Night," or did ABC let her handle too much of the production at too young of an age? She only has worked in Hollywood for a few years and is only 27 years old. Some critics complain that ABC is simply trying to capitalize on the "Pitch Perfect" bandwagon that was created by Wilson's Fat Amy character. Check out this trailer for the premiere of the new show "Super Fun Night" and watch live tonight on ABC at 9:30 PM EST!
