ABC Picks Up 'Suburgatory' Comedy Pilot

ABC has picked up another comedy pilot.

This time it's a half-hour, single-camera project titled Suburgatory from executive producer and writer Emily Kapnek.

From Warner Bros. TV, Suburgatory is a satirical look at life in the suburbs that centers on a New York City girl who moves to a cookie-cutter community only to realize that life there is much scarier. It is a heightened view of suburbia with a cinematic quality that evokes the scope and horror of perfection.

ABC has ordered the dance-themed Grace, the police drama Partners, Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 and the Charlie's Angels pilot. The network is also developing an eight-part Wicked miniseries with Salma Hayek based on the best-selling book by Gregory Maguire.
