ABC Wins Bidding War for Blog-Based Sitcom From ‘American Dad’ Exec Producer

Nov 2, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A bidding war over a project from "American Dad" executive producer Nahnatchka Khan that’s based on the blog "Dealbreaker" has been won by ABC, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

Produced by 20th TV, where Khan is under an overall deal, the project will be co-written by Khan and "American Dad" writer Laura McCreary, the story says.

It’s based on a blog by comics Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson, and which is described as a "hilarious reference guide to the qualities that, when discovered, transform the ‘date you hope to go home with’ into the ‘date you pray never calls again’," the article says.

Andreeva points out that "Dealbreaker" isn’t in any way related to "Dealbreakers," the fake dating-advice show created by Liz Lemon on "30 Rock" through the character’s catchphrase, "That’s a dealbreaker, ladies."
