This makes our Friday so much better. To the dismay of some viewers, Jenny Slate will be moving from a regular to a recurring role on FX's Married. But fear not! Turns out, the comedic phenom might be getting her own show—on the same network. 

As Deadline.com (opens in new tab) reports, the Saturday Night Live alum will be starring in a pilot written by two of the co-writers on the amazing film Obvious Child (opens in new tab)—which also starred Slate—Gillian Robespierre and Elisabeth Holm. (Robespierre was also the director of the film.)

Honestly, if this gets picked up, it's going to be the best. OBVIOUSLY. (Sorry. *Packs up laptop, leaves forever.*)
