ABC Snags 'Work It,' 'Lost and Found' Comedy Pilots
ABC has given the OK for two comedy pilots.
Work It, from writers Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen, centers on two unemployed car salesmen who realize that they are living in a woman's world, so they decide that to find work again, they must dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. By doing so, according to the logline, it makes them better men, husbands and fathers, but also makes them appreciate the sanctuary of their nights at the bar where they can be themselves.
Reich and Cohen will executive produce the half-hour multicamera comedy, which comes from Warner Bros. TV.
The second one, Lost and Found, is about a narcissistic New York City bartender and party girl whose life is turned upside down when the conservative 18-year-old son she gave up for adoption shows up.
Marisa Coughlan wrote the pilot and will serve as supervising producer. The project is produced by Warner Bros. TV.
