Good news for fans of the web series In the Motherhood: The show is moving to primetime television on ABC. The network has scheduled 13 episodes based on the popular MindShare series about the zany lives of three mothers and girlfriends, inspired by the real adventures of women across the country who write into the show’s site with their stories.
Though comic actress Chelsea Handler will stay on board, her costars Leah Remini and Jenny McCarthy aren’t involved in the ABC project. That bums me out because I love Chelsea and Jenny as sisters. Check out this clip and try not to giggle:
Who will be Chelsea’s new costars? The buzz right now is that busy Ms. Handler — who also hosts a late night talk show and has penned two bestselling books — will be joined by Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) and Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
Both of those women, in my opinion, are two of the finest comic actresses television has ever seen. Cheryl is the perfect foil to neurotic Larry David on Curb and, frankly, after tuning into a few episodes of Megan’s dull talk show, I’m happy to see her in a sitcom again.
Have you checked out In The Motherhood on the web? Are you more inclined to watch it on regular ol’ TV? Which one of these ladies is your favorite?
