STATUS: previously in development (2008-2009 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: script
DESCRIPTION: (from TBS's press release) TBS has begun development on a new sitcom to be based on Jane Ganahl's sassy, insightful memoir Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife. Emmy winner Betty Thomas (Dream On, The Brady Bunch Movie) will direct, should TBS move forward. The pilot for the series will be adapted by Emmy winner Elaine Pope (Seinfeld, Alfie) from Ganahl's critically acclaimed book about one woman's rollercoaster ride through middle-age. Beginning with the launch of her wildly successful San Francisco Chronicle column "Single Minded" and ending with her 50th birthday, Ganahl's book follows one frenetic year in a smart, social, middle-aged woman's life. It's a year of prodigious change, both personal and professional, further complicated by hormonal upheaval, family issues and the stunning realization that, after a life filled with too many men to count, she may stay single.
