Amazon has given a pilot order to “Half-Empty,” the comedy from co-writer and star Cazzie David, the streamer announced on Monday.

David stars as a sardonic college student whose overactive imagination leads to catastrophic thinking and an endless chain of social disasters. David, daughter of comedian Larry David, penned the script for the pilot alongside Elisa Kalani, with whom she previously collaborated on the web series “Eighty-Sixed.”

“Girls” alum Sarah Heyward will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside David and Kalani. Augustine Frizzell will direct and serve as executive producer on the pilot.

“It’s been a delightful collaboration. Although I have nothing to base that on, having never collaborated,” David said in a statement.

“Half-Empty” hails from Annapurna TV and Endeavor Content, with Annapurna’s Sue Naegle and Ali Krug to produce.

David is repped by WME. Frizzell is repped by WME and Victoria Cook & Lee Goldberg at FKKS. Kalani is repped by Management 360. Heyward is repped by UTA and Tara Kole.
