Maya Rudolph, Christina Applegate and Will Arnett

Amidst the excitement in closing the Cannes Film Festival, several famous small-screen actors also had something to celebrate. Comedic actress Christina Applegate’s new sitcom, “Up All Night” has been picked up by NBC and is set to air in the fall.

The show, about the struggles and adjustments in life of parents-to-be, stars Applegate as Reagan, a working mother married to a stay-at-home dad, played by Will Arnett. Saturday Night Live’s Maya Rudolph plays Reagan’s boss. The show also just happens to be art imitating life; Applegate gave birth recently to her first daughter, while Arnett welcomed a second son last year with wife Amy Poehler, and Rudolph is now pregnant with her third child. Even with parenthood to occupy her, “I will be ready,” Applegate says of returning to filming so quickly.

Applegate’s last show, “Samantha Who?” was canceled exactly two years ago in May 2009 after its viewership dropped in its second season, and Arnett’s comedy, “Arrested Development,” to the dismay of myself and many others in its cult following, was also canceled after three seasons. These disappointments seem to forecast a bad start for the show, but with a couple of funny trailers already out, it already looks promising.

Plus, with a trio of some of the funniest actors around and executive producer Lorne Michaels (creator of SNL and 30 Rock), viewers will most likely take note. The stars have already made a few red carpet appearances together, but we will have to wait until later on in the summer to see if commercials and other publicity will sway audiences.
