Mumolo co-wrote the 2011 hit flick “Bridesmaids,” which starred Melissa McCarthy, who is executive producer on “Amy’s Brother.”
“Amy’s Brother” is about an unconventional family that is formed when a successful type-a man and his estranged sister, Amy (played by Mumolo), plus her two children, find themselves not only back in each other’s lives but also living under one roof.
