ABC Working With Reese Witherspoon on Family Comedy

Oct 12, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine banner and ABC Studios are behind a new comedy that’s in development at ABC. Deadline reports that the network is developing “Americanized,” inspired by Sara Saedi’s memoir “Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card.”

“Written by Saedi (‘iZombie’), ‘Americanized’ tells the story of a loving and off-beat Iranian family who’s been living with a huge secret: They’re undocumented immigrants,” Deadline reports. “Told through an irreverent, heartfelt and a-political lens, the series will give viewers a window into the life of a Middle-Eastern household while exploring the universal truths that bond every type of ‘American’ family.”

Saedi is executive producing with Hello Sunshine’s Witherspoon and Lauren Levy Neustadter.
