ABC has a new comedy project in development from an actress known for her work on “MADtv.” Deadline.com reports that the network bought the untitled project from Stephnie Weir, who was a cast member on the sketch comedy show from 2000-2006 and was also one of the show’s writers.
The project, from Weir and CBS TV Studios, is set in a credit union. The project focuses on a branch manager who believes the credit union can compete with the new UberBank, the story notes.
The deal extends Weir’s relationship with ABC, which has bought three previous scripts that have gone to pilot, the report adds.
Weir will appear on the new FX comedy series “The Comedians” with Josh Gad and Billy Crystal.
