ABC orders “Bad Teacher” scribes “Pulling” comedy series

PanARMENIAN.Net - ABC ordered three dramas including a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, a steamy drama from a ER producer, a supernatural entry produced by Brad Pitt and a comedy from the Bad Teacher writers to pilot.

Comedy Pulling, which is based on the 2006 British series by the same name, hails from Bad Teacher scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. The pair will write and executive produce the adaptation, which revolves around three dysfunctional women in their 30s living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point.

Sharon Horgan -- who played one of the women in the original -- and Dennis Kelly, creators of the U.K. series, will exec produce the project from ABC Studios and Aaron Kaplan's Kapital Entertainment. ABC previously developed a U.S. iteration of Pulling during the 2008-09 development season, but the effort failed to get a series order.
