ABC has given a put pilot commitment to an “irreverent hourlong comedic mystery” from “Awkward” creator Lauren Iungerich and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, reports Deadline.com.
The project, “Couch Detective.” comes from Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV. It’s said to be along the lines of mystery dramas featuring amateur detectives, such as “Murder, She Wrote.”
In “Couch Detective,” a 30-something woman solves crimes based on her knowledge of TV crime shows. Iungerich is writing the script and will executive produce with Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman, the piece adds.
The project is Iungerich’s first hourlong sale, and “also marks a rare comedic hourlong series for Bruckheimer TV, which is best known as [a] drama series producer,” the story notes, adding: “ABC has been looking to get a female-centered amateur detective light mystery procedural on the air.”
