Kate McKinnon is taking her comedy to Audible. Starting today, the Saturday Night Live star and her sister, Emily Lynne, can be heard on Heads Will Roll, an audio-only original scripted comedy that plays out over 10 episodes.
McKinnon plays the evil Queen Mortuana of the Night Realm, while Lynne takes over as her ditzy raven, JoJo. The duo receive a prophecy about a peasant uprising, so they go on the search for the Shard of Acquiescence to help stave off the rebellion.
Crazy, right? Here, EW checked in with McKinnon and actress/writer Lynne (Our Cartoon President) about the comedy’s evolution, how they pulled it together, and whether there was any real argument over who would play the evil queen.
