CBS Buys Jerry Bruckheimer Project Deadline
CBS has put into development a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced project, Deadline.com reports. The project is based on a blog called GrannyIsMyWingman.com.
The project tracks a 20-something woman and her grandmother as they venture out in the dating world, the story notes. The blog was started by 25-year-old Kayli Stollak, who wanted to document online dating and asked her 76-year-old grandmother to try it with her, the story notes.
Stollak and Donald Todd of "Samantha Who?" will co-write the project.
The report notes: “This is the third comedy project based on a blog by a twenty-something female creator to sell to a broadcast network in the past three days, following ‘20-Nothings’ at CBS, based on Lauren Bachelis’ ‘Hollywood Assistants’ Tumblr blog, and ‘F*ck I’m in My Twenties’ at NBC, based on the Tumblr blog of Emma Koenig.
