ABC Working on New Comedy From Producers Behind 'Bob's Burgers' and 'Big C' Deadline
ABC has a new comedy in the works that traces its bloodlines to "The Big C" and "Bob's Burgers." Deadline.com reports that the network ordered "Work With Jerks" from former "Big C" showrunner Jenny Bicks and "Bob’s Burgers" writer/producers Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux.
"20th Century Fox TV, where the Molyneux sisters are under an overall deal, is producing," the report notes. The project is written by Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux with Bicks supervising, and all three are executive producing,
"'Work With Jerks' centers on an ambitious yet often misguided woman whose role models are Hillary Clinton and Marissa Mayer but [who] realizes she may have to rethink her professional strategy when she joins a company working with all male employees," the report notes.
Bicks has already sold a mermaid project to NBC this season, Deadline notes.
