Crazy Ex-Girlfriend showrunner Aline Brosh McKenna is teaming with Rachel Specter and Audrey Wauchope, two fellow writers on the CW comedy, to create a female-driven comedy for Paramount Players, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Brosh McKenna will produce the untitled laugher, which is set in the world of law enforcement, with Specter and Wauchope penning the scripts.

Brosh McKenna earned her stripes in screenwriting, penning such female comedies as The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses. She returned to TV with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star and co-creator Rachel Bloom. The half-hour with "musical elements" stars Bloom as Rebecca, a young woman who abandons a choice job at a law firm and her life in New York in an attempt to find love in the unlikely locale of West Covina, California.

Wauchope became embroiled in the December firing of The Royals creator and showrunner Mark Schwahn from the E! series when the former One Tree Hill writer tweeted, without publicly naming Schwahn, that she and her writing partner, Specter, had been sexually harassed during their time working on the teen soap.

Brosh McKenna is repped by CAA; Wauchope and Specter are with UTA and 831 Entertainment.
