ABC Buys Project from Comedy Writing Duo Based on One of Their Gender Reassignments Deadline

ABC has bought a comedy project called "Changes" from the writing duo Joshua Sternin and Jennifer Ventimilia, who was called Jeffrey Ventimilia before her gender reassignment, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

The comedy is about two men whose three-decade-long friendship is changed when one of them becomes a woman.

"Sternin and Ventimilia’s partnership echoes the Wachowskis, who also continued to work together following Larry’s gender reassignment," the story says.

The project is one of two comedies the duo has sold to ABC, with the other project based on the memories of activist and journalist Dan Savage, the story says.
