The duo will star in the television reboot of the 1996 film, which will take place in modern-day San Francisco. Like the original rom-com, the story revolves around three women who were friends and classmates in the ’90s and reconnect after their close friend from college dies in a freak accident.
The casting is a huge “get” for TV Land, as “First Wives Club” will mark Hannigan’s first major role after “How I Met Your Mother” and Hilty’s since “Smash,” which turned her into a household name.

That is to say, though How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town isn’t the raucous and hard-r-rated sex comedy some might expect, it is obsessive about all articles and activities anatomical, from the aforementioned group-sex event to more scatological gags, most verbal as opposed to visual. It’s »
