Actress Kat Dennings is returning to TV in a small screen adaptation of the popular blog-turned-book How May We Hate You.

The 2 Broke Girls star, whose show was axed last year after six seasons, will lead the cast of the new comedy pilot as the debt-ridden Ellie, a guest services specialist who has to smile through the pain of dealing with wealthy hotel guests, who pay more per night for their luxury room in the heart of New York City than she pays for rent each month.

She navigates the world of hospitality with the help of her co-worker and friend, Gabe.

The as-yet-untitled project, which will be produced for U.S. network ABC, is based on the Tumblr blog by Anna Drezen and Todd Dakotah Briscoe. They turned their true stories into a book in 2016, titled, How May We Hate You?: Notes from the Concierge Desk.

Dennings will also serve as a producer on the forthcoming program.
