USA Network may have passed on Happy Endings but it hasn’t passed on Eliza Coupe.

The network announced today that it has green lit a new original half-hour comedy pilot starring Coupe as a corporate attorney who has a nervous breakdown after being passed up for a promotion and ends up working among the legal world’s underdogs as a public defender.

Titled Benched, the pilot was penned by Michaela Watkins (Trophy Wife), Damon Jones (The Groundlings), and John Enbom (creator of Party Down). Enbom will serve as showrunner.
