This Is FortyThis Is Forty, EN Movies – Beth McCarthy will helm Melissa McCarthy’s newest feature film. The 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live television director will bring her skills to the silver screen in Melissa’s upcoming road trip comedy Tammy, according to Variety.

The film follows a woman who has just been laid off from her job at a fast food restaurant, before discovering that her husband is having an affair. In response to her personal upheaval Melissa’s character takes a wacky roadtrip with her lewd, alcoholic and diabetic grandmother.

Beth – who is not related to Melissa – was the Saturday Night Live director from 1995 to 2006. She has also helmed episodes for Parks and Recreation and two Super Bowl halftime shows.

Melissa co-wrote the script for Tammy with her husband Ben Falcone.

The Help director Tate Taylor was in talks to helm the project originally, but he dropped out late last year.

Melissa will next be seen in comedy This Is Forty, which will be released later this year. Tammy will reach theatres in 2013.
