Hannah Simone (New Girl) is set to star and write a comedy pilot for ABC based on her own family.
The unnamed pilot follows a woman (Simone) who is broke, single, and nearly 30-something, as she and her father form a new bond when her father announces that he and her mother are separating.
Last year Simone was attached to a reboot of the Greatest American Hero at ABC which received a lot of buzz but wasn’t picked up. This time it is a “Put Pilot” which pretty much guarantees that this show will get a season order. As well as writing and starring Simone will also executive produce the project.
