NBC has bought a comedy pitch for a show with the provocative title "My Best Friend Is a Lesbo," reports Deadline.com.
The project is from Warner Bros. TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s studio-based Fake Empire. The show is about two female best friends, one straight and the other gay.
The comedy is based on the friendship of longtime roommates Sascha Rothchild and Randi Barnes, who will write the script together, the piece notes.
The story notes that the title might be expected to be toned down if the project makes it to series, following in the footsteps of shows such as ABC’s “Good Christian Bitches,” which became “Good Christian Belles,” and “The Bitch at Apt. 23,” which became simply “Apartment 23.”
