Emily Goldwyn and Sasha Spielberg -- Both Scions of Iconic Hollywood Families -- Sell Comedy to ABC Deadline
Emily Goldwyn and Sasha Spielberg, the daughters of John Goldwyn and Steven Spielberg, have sold a comedy called "Girls Without Boys" to ABC, reports Deadline.com.
From Warner Bros. TV, the project will be written by Goldwyn and Spielberg, who came up with the idea based on their own experiences at the Marlborough school, the story says. The project tracks three smart but socially awkward girls as they try to navigate the world after attending a single-sex school.
"Marlborough may have given them a first-class education, but not about things like being able to talk to boys," the piece notes.
Caroline Williams of "Up All Night" will be the showrunner, and will executive produce along with Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Emily Goldwyn recently was an assistant to Williams, who helped her with the process of developing the show.
"This is the first big deal for Goldwyn & Spielberg as a writing team," the piece notes.
Besides being the daughter of film producer John Goldwyn, Emily Goldwyn is the great-granddaughter of Samuel Goldwyn, one of the archetypal early Hollywood media moguls; and the granddaughter of film producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr.
