Sources have told AfterEllen.com that out comic Liz Feldman (The Jay Leno Show, This Just Out) and writer Darlene Hunt (Will and Grace, The C Word) are developing a female buddy comedy with a lesbian lead character for NBC.
If not, perhaps the hypnotic power of Feldman’s blue blazer will simply make her (and her show) impossible to resist.
Female buddy comedies have a long and successful television history:
I Love Lucy
Laverne and Shirley
Sex and the City
Wouldn’t it be great to continue in that tradition, but with an out lesbian lead? And with story lines that don’t require us to make do with subtext?
No word yet on if the the series will get picked up, when it might go into production or who would be cast in the starring roles, but the very thought of it does stimulate the imagination.
What funny lady would you most like to see in the role of the lesbian lead?
