Jill Kargman and Drew Barrymore are proof that it can actually be fun to work with family.

The “Odd Mom Out” creator told us she was “so ecstatic” when Barrymore — who is Kargman’s ex-sister-in-law — asked her to contribute to “The Drew Barrymore Show.”

On the talk show, which debuted this fall, Kargman, 46, has her own segment, called “Internet Debates with Jill Kargman,” where she has done some man-on-the street reporting and chatted with Barrymore on different subjects like Zoom and family get-togethers.

Barrymore, 45, was married to Kargman’s younger brother, Will Kopelman, from 2012 until 2016, with Kargman saying that Barrymore will always be her “sister for life.”

Kargman, who kept the talk show news secret for about a year, said Barrymore called her in March or April to ask her to be a correspondent.

“And she FaceTimed to me at like 7:15 in the morning and I happened to be in the kitchen having cereal … And I was like, ‘Hi, what’s up?’ And I was, you know, my hair everywhere and bathrobe on,” Kargman told Page Six. “And she said, ‘I want you to be a correspondent on my show in September.’”

Although producers originally wanted Kargman “to be a cross between Joan Rivers and Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog” and do a lot of red carpet reporting, “obviously that’s been shelved because there’s no awards shows.”

Kargman said that despite the pandemic, the morale at Barrymore’s show is “so high because it’s really from the top down and Drew is kind of a human rainbow and everyone there just feels so lucky to be part of it, including myself.”

As for her own projects, Kargman is “sort of waiting to pitch my new TV show because I guess the slates are very backed up from last year.”

“So I’m just going to wait till the vaccine is implemented and the dust has settled. I’m writing a play and just sort of doing that on my own time and enjoying my kids before they’re, you know, off again to parties one day,” she said.

“Odd Mom Out,” which ended in 2017, is now streaming on Peacock.
