'Single Parents' Duo Sets Family Comedy at ABC
Two veterans of ABC's Single Parents have sold another comedy at the network.
Taylor Cox and Kim Rosenstock are developing Happy for You, about the relationship between three sisters and their mother. The project from Disney's 20th Television has a script plus penalty commitment from the network. Cox is writing, and Rosenstock, who has an overall deal with 20th, is executive producing and supervising.
In Happy for You, when the youngest of three sisters announces she's getting married first, it sends her older, unmarried sisters — and their newly separated mother — into an existential tailspin. The potential series would follow this family of Midwestern women as they confront their own failed love lives, plan a wedding, and try not to take their feelings out on the flower arrangements.
Cox and Rosenstock met while working on Single Parents, which ABC canceled in the spring after two seasons. Cox was a writer and producer on the show, and Rosenstock was a co-executive producer and writer.
Cox's credits also include NBC's Abby's and Amazon kids' show Just Add Magic. She is repped by Katie Newman at 3 Arts. Rosenstock is currently writing Only Murders in the Building at Hulu and has worked on GLOW and New Girl. She's repped by Tara Kole at Gang Tyre.
Happy for You joins a development slate at ABC that also includes a Wonder Years reboot centered on a Black family, Black-ish spinoff Old-ish and dramas from Pose creator Steven Canals and the team of Eva Longoria, Forest Whitaker and former Queen of the South EP Natalie Chaidez.
