ABC has bought a comedy project from a "Seinfeld" writer and a "Scrubs" writer, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
The untitled project from "Seinfeld" writer Jennifer Crittenden and "Scrubs" writer Gabrielle Allan focuses on a 1990s all-girl band that reunites after 20 years.
Said Allan: "Our way into that world, our main character, is a mom who was a rock star and part of this group, and now she’s driving her kids around. I feel like there’s a lot of frustrated rock stars driving their kids around, and the difference is that she’s actually a rock star.”
Crittenden noted that the idea was inspired by 1980s girl bands such as the Go-Gos and the Bangles, and that the project will feature a comedic focus similar to "Spinal Tap," the story notes.
The project will focus on four women and their 20-year-old manager/production assistant, who is the son of their former manager, the story notes.
