Kat Dennings is one of the Two Broke Girls
Actress Kat Dennings, who will next be seen on the big screen in Thor, has secured one of two leading roles in a new CBS pilot entitled Two Broke Girls.

Kat Dennings will play Max, a waitress who has been poor her whole life. She meets Caroline, a woman who was born into wealth but falls on hard times and takes a job at the same Brooklyn diner Max works at. The two become friends and try to form their own business, if they can come up with $250,000 in start-up cash.

Sex and the City 2 director Michael Patrick King and comedian Whitney Cummings co-wrote and will executive produce the pilot. The Caroline character has yet to be cast. A production schedule hasn't been revealed yet for the pilot.
