A spinoff of the comedy series “The Middle” moved closer to becoming a reality, with the network giving a pilot production commitment to the single-camera comedy, Variety reports.
The spinoff will reportedly focus on Eden Sher’s character.
The new series “would follow the twentysomething adventures of eternal optimist Sue Heck (Sher) as she leaves the small town of Orson to navigate the ups and downs of a career and young adulthood in the big city of Chicago,” Variety reports.
Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline, creators of “The Middle,” are reportedly attached as writers and executive producers. Variety notes that Heisler and Heline’s Blackie and Blondie Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. TV.
