Saturday Night Live head writer and OUT100 honoree, Chris Kelly, has landed a pilot deal with Comedy Central alongside his creative partner, Sarah Schneider, Varietyreports.

The show will allegedly focus on two adult siblings who must take a hard look at their own wilted lives when their 12-year-old brother unexpectedly skyrockets to wild success and stardom. Kelly will direct and the show will be executive produced in part by SNL mastermind Lorne Michaels.

Kelly has previously served as a writer for Broad City, and released his debut feature, Other People, which he wrote and directed last year. Schneider, meanwhile, previously worked as a producer for Master of None and as a writer for College Humor.

Following Lorde's iconic thrashing last week, SNL will return April 8 with host Louis C.K. and musical guest The Chainsmokers.
