Well, that didn't take long.
Saturday Night Live vets Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah – who learned earlier this week that their comedic services were no longer needed on the late-night sketch series – have both scored pilot deals at Showtime, the network announced on Thursday at the TCA Summer Press Tour.
Killam will star in the tentatively titled Mating, which is a comedy anthology series that focuses on a freshly divorced guy who got married at a young age and is now trying to navigate a much-changed, complicated dating world. Mating is being executive-produced by Jason Katims (Parenthood) and Stu Zicherman (The Americans), with Zicherman writing the pilot. The concept is to feature a different protagonist each season.

Pharoah, 28, and Killam, 34, have both been with the show for six seasons and are well-known for their impression skills impersonating everyone from politicians to actors. (Pharoah, notably, is famous for his President Obama portrayal.)

But a "hot little mouse" known as P. Ryan and some "orange" dude named John Boehner are here to remind you that the OG GOPers are still some "pretty cool guys."

With Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, the series was able to turn what was probably a long-running writer's room fantasy into reality: What if Trump "live-tweeted" a sketch?
