Ultimately, a script was written in which Applegate, Arnett and Rudolph played actors portraying the characters Reagan, Chris and Ava on a fictional show called Up All Night. Off the show-within-a-show, Arnett’s character would live at home with his mother, and Applegate’s would be dating. Rudolph’s real-life pregnancy was being written into the storyline — and included a “who’s the daddy?” twist.

What. I want to see that version.

For real.

Microreview: Up All Night
Very promising pilot if a little disjointed. Once they figure out the workplace element and how to make Maya Rudolph’s character more than an amusing sideshow they could really have something. There’s a lot of talent at play here, from the cast to the creator to the production team (Lorne Michael’s name is on it), but the pilot may have fallen victim to too much studio and network meddling. There’s enough good to remain cautiously optimistic.

I hope this all works, because I like this idea.
