Fans of Rebel Wilson from her performances in Pitch Perfect, Bridesmaids, and hosting the MTV Movie Awards know her to be nothing short of super fun at all times, so it's somewhat fitting that her upcoming TV series be titled Super Fun Night.
The new ABC show, starring Rebel, centers around three female friends who make a commitment to have a wild and crazy time together every Friday night.
Rebel not only stars in the Conan O'Brien executive produced show, she also is the creator, as well as a producer and writer for the series.
On handling her many new responsibilities, Rebel jokingly fears the worst for her sobriety.
"I can understand why people who have their own T.V. shows crack it, and turn to drugs... [Conan O'Brien] said 'start drinking.'"
While Rebel wears a lot of hats in Super Fun Night, she may be taking a note from fellow young comedy powerhouse Lena Dunham (HBO's Girls) in her penchant for not wearing a lot of clothes.
"If you're talking about nudity, then I'm always up for that," remarked the award-winning actress, adding "I don't think when I'm acting, 'is this going to bring shame on myself or my family?'"
Watch the video above to hear from Rebel Wilson, as well as co-stars Liza Lapira and Lauren Ash on the upcoming ABC comedy, which premieres Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
