ABC is moving forward with a one-hour project from “Desperate Housewives” and “American Crime” star Felicity Huffman. Set in the world of fashion, “House of Moore” has received a put pilot commitment from the network, Deadline.com reports.
Huffman will executive produce, and while she is not locked in to star in the show, the report notes that the project is being designed as a star vehicle for her.
Created by Daniel and Ben Barnz, the project comes from ABC Studios and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. Daniel Barnz is set to write and direct.
“‘House of Moore’ is said to be similar in tone to ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and to explore plus-size fashion,” the story reports. “It centers on the sexy, twisted lives of an iconic fashion family, looking at our beauty-obsessed culture through a darkly comedic lens.”
The report notes that Huffman is fully committed to “American Crime,” the John Ridley anthology series that began airing on ABC in March.
“If ‘House of Moore’ goes to series and ‘American Crime’ is renewed for a third season, Huffman will topline ‘Moore’ only if she could also do ‘American Crime,'” the story reports. “That is not inconceivable as ‘American Crime’ is done as a limited series, producing around 10 episodes a year. Additionally, both ‘House of Moore’ and ‘American Crime’ are on the same network, ABC, and hail from the same studio, ABC Studios, making coordination easier.”
