Smiths have laugh tracks for CW, ABC


Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have set up two comedy projects, one at CW with "Jack & Jill" creator Randi Mayem Singer and one at ABC with Betsy Borns, who co-created "All of Us" with the couple (HR 11/27).

The untitled CW project, from CBS Paramount Network TV and Overbrook Entertainment, is a single-camera half-hour about a group of mostly divorced mothers who live in an apartment complex.

The untitled ABC project is a multicamera comedy about a black man from a conservative family and his Jewish wife from a liberal family who juggle raising their twins and dealing with their mother-in-laws.
