Dartland Zicklin, Elfman reteam
Empty"Dharma & Greg" co-creator Dottie Dartland Zicklin is reuniting with series star Jenna Elfman and ABC.
Dartland Zicklin has come aboard the network's comedy pilot — starring Elfman and executive produced by Darren Star — as exec producer/showrunner.
The project, tentatively titled "Literary Superstars," centers on a sexy, sassy literary publicist (Elfman) who is fighting for the rights of her authors while balancing a busy social schedule.
Matthew Reilly penned the pilot, which Dartland Zicklin will executive produce with Star.
Originally set up at Sony Pictures TV, where Star is based, "Literary Superstars" will now become a co-production with ABC Studios, where Dartland Zicklin has an overall deal.
Dartland Zicklin's series credits also include "Cybill" and "Grace Under Fire." She is repped by UTA.
