ABC has given a season order to Libby & Malcolm a new comedy starring Felicity Huffman and Courtney B. Vance.
Huffman stars as Libby, a strong, brilliant, white Republican. Vance stars as Malcolm Black, a liberal pundit and father of three kids who arms himself with cold hard facts and an irresistible easy charm that wins over everyone he meets. The opposing pair recently married and forge a new life together at home against all odds, while going head-to-head at work on their fiery new political talk show.
This makes the new comedy the first network pilot to be greenlit for 2017-18.
