Reilly and Will Ferrell with Adam McKay directing and Judd Apatow producing. She can next be seen in Wilfred, the half-hour comedy starring Elijah Wood for FX.

Savage’s improvisation background from The Groundlings led her to lead roles in The Grand opposite Woody Harrelson and Dog Bites Man, the short lived but stand-out Comedy Central show created by Dan Mazer (Borat).

In addition to her great acting and improv skills, Savage is an accomplished writer. She is currently writing a feature comedy script for Castle Rock Entertainment and recently wrote an untitled half-hour pilot script for 20th Century Fox TV through Chernin Entertainment.
