'Light Years' travels to CW


The CW is expanding its business with "Reaper" producer ABC Studios with "Light Years."

The network has handed a put pilot commitment to the family dramedy penned by Liz Tigelaar.

Gary Fleder is attached to direct the project, which centers on a 15-year-old girl who, seeking emancipation after growing up in foster homes, tracks down her birth parents who had given her up for adoption when their one-night stand resulted in pregnancy.

The girl connects with her mother, a morning radio show host with a fear of commitment, and father, an immature bar owner, and the trio form a modern-day "It Takes A Village"-type family.
