Kat Dennings fans everywhere are elated to know that the 2 Broke Girls star is returning to the screen in her new comedy series titled, Dollface. According to a report by Variety, the series has been picked up by Hulu for a ten-episode order.
Dollface will tell the story of a young, vibrant female character (played by Dennings) who is in the wake of dealing with the end of a long-term relationship with her boyfriend and must now go through the horrors of re-acclimating to the single life. Kat’s very relatable character will be seen struggling with being around female friends and trying to re-establish old bonds and connections that she abandoned for her once relevant romance.
In addition to starring as the primary character in the series, Dennings is also wearing another hat as the executive producer for the series as well. Dollface is the brainchild of creator Jordan Weiss who will be serving as executive producer alongside Dennings.
Kat is best known for her six-season stint in the traditional multi-cam comedy series, 2 Broke Girls which aired on CBS from 2011 to 2017. She also appeared in both Thor and Thor: The Dark World alongside her co-star Chris Hemsworth.
The actress has also played in several feature films including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, and Raise Your Voice alongside former Disney Channel star Hilary Duff.
