Comedy series inspired by Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest on ABC – Variety

adminOctober 31, 2018

ABC is developing a comedy series inspired by the real life friendship of Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.

The multi-camera series is titled "Working Wife" and has received a pilot commitment on the network. It is described as an ensemble comedy that explores the dynamics that surround people's "work wives", who have very few boundaries between them, and how that affects their relationships with everyone else.

Michael Ian Black will write and produce the executive series. Seacrest will be executive producer through Ryan Seacrest Productions along with Nina Wass and Andrea Shay from RSP. Ripa will be the executive producer along with Mark Consuelos and Albert Bianchini under his Milojo banner. ABC Studios will produce.

Ripa and Seacrest are currently hosting ABC's morning show "Live with Kelly and Ryan." Ripa has been on the show since 2001, with Seacrest as his permanent co-host last year. Seacrest also serves as the host of the ABC reboot of "American Idol." Both Ripa and Seacrest are currently under general agreements in ABC studios.

Black is known for acting on projects such as "Wet Hot American Summer," "The State" and "Another Period." As a writer, he has written for "Another Period" and "The State", as well as the films "Wedding Daze" and "Run, Fatboy, Run!"

Milojo Productions is represented by CAA and Franklin Weinrib Rudell & Vassallo. RSP is represented by CAA and Hansen Jacobsen. Black is restated by UTA and Schachter / Brown.
