“Transparent” creator Jill Soloway has something different in mind with her latest comedy project. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Soloway is working with Upright Citizens Brigade alums Ashley Skidmore and Lyle Friedman on a feminism-focused comedy for MTV.
“The untitled comedy centers on two young girls who meet at summer camp and bond over their passion for second-wave feminism,” THR reports. “During a wild night in the forest, both girls are struck by lightning and their friendship, power and destiny is fatefully sealed. Now, 10 years later, they romp around town hell-bent on saving all of womankind — if only they could save themselves first.”
Said Soloway, according to the story: “Lyle and Ashley have a magical ability to tap into the female psyche, and through their own special brand of truth and humor they absolve us of our most humiliating moments. I’m so excited to godmother this show and bring Lyle and Ashley’s fresh take on lady power to MTV.”
