Tammin Sursok of Pretty Little Liars and writer-director Sean McEwen have inked a deal with digital studio Astronauts Wanted to develop and produce a new scripted comedy series Aussie Girl.
The series will be produced by Sursoks production company, Charlie Baby Productions, and New York-based Astronauts Wanted, a joint venture between Judy McGrath and Sony Music Entertainment.
Sursok is set to star Aussie Girl, which is loosely based on the actress-writer-producers experience of being a star Down Under before having to start all over again after moving to L.A. The story takes place at the very moment when her career in Australia takes a turn for the worse and she is forced to flee and try to make it in Hollywood. Astronauts Wanted bills it as a fish-out-of-water comedy thats a hybrid of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Inside Amy Schumer.
