Looking for a play
February 26, 2013 8:50 PM   Subscribe

Looking for a play. It's about the writing staff of a fictional TV show, I think a sitcom. The protagonist is female. (And I think the playwright is too, and possibly the protagonist is the playwright's stand-in). Other characters: a Norman Lear-esque showrunner, and an ex-NCAA basketball player staff writer.

Trying to recall other details...I think the protagonist and the basketball player sleep together at one point. I THINK the protagonist loses her job at the end. The whole thing read like a dramatization of the playwright's awful experiences in TV writing. And I read it in 2007.
