Rachael HarrisWhat do you get when you mix two funny ladies? CBS is hoping ratings gold.

Comedienne Rachael Harris, perhaps best known as Jess' (Zooey Deschanel) boss on New Girl, has nabbed a new gig.

She'll co-star in an untitled pilot for the network that's being produced by none other than Bridesmaids' breakout star Melissa McCarthy.

The show also stars and is written by McCarthy's husband Ben Falcone.

McCarthy, who's already become a power player in the comedy world, will certainly generate more buzz for the pilot if she wins the Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role on February 26!
