When it comes to TV tropes, the cliche of the nagging wife is one we desperately wish would go away. Now, Rashida Jones is fighting to combat this stereotype with a new sitcom told from the wife’s point of view—and it’s literally called Kevin Can F— Himself. 

Entertainment Weekly reported today, November 2nd, that AMC is developing the series, which will be executive produced by Jones and Will McCormack and was created by Valerie Armstrong. The working title, Kevin Can F— Himself is a clear (and savage) reference to the Kevin James sitcom Kevin Can Waitwhich killed off the main character’s wife in Season 2 and was subsequently canceled.

In the official description of the series provided to EW, AMC described the wife in Kevin Can F--- Himself as, "A beauty paired with a less attractive, dismissive, caveman-like husband who gets to be a jerk because she’s a nag and he’s 'funny.'"

Um, genius.

The description continues by noting that the new series wants to “break television convention.” AMC’s description also asks, “what happens when this supporting character is presented as a real person? And what if that person is pissed?”

We’ve been waiting our whole lives for a sitcom like this.

Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when (or if) we can expect this show to grace our TVs. EW notes that the project hasn’t officially been ordered to series yet, although writers are working on scripts.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Kevin Can F— Himself will be airing sometime in the near(ish) future. And with any luck, maybe they’ll keep the title.
