Morning Talk Fixture Developing Musical Comedy Deadline
One of the mainstays of the morning TV talk scene is working on a musical comedy for ABC Family. Deadline.com reports that "Live! with Kelly and Michael's" Kelly Ripa, along with her husband, Mark Consuelos, is developing “Rated P for Parenthood,” a musical comedy about parenting.
The couple will executive produce, along with writer-actress Jamie Denbo, who will adapt the project from a stage musical comedy of the same name. The stage show ran off-Broadway in 2012, and was created by Sandy Rustin, with music and lyrics by Dan Lipton and David Rossmer.
The project is described as an irreverent look at parenting, with some of the spirit of “Girls” and “Avenue Q.”
