Pilot Scoop: Jenna Elfman Eyes ABC's Bad Mom

Former Dharma & Greg star Jenna Elfman is in negotiations for the lead in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot Bad Mom.

The project centers on Julia (Elfman), a single mother whose two kids had been raised largely by their grandmother. When Nana decides she wants to reclaim her life, Julia is forced to step up and be a parent.

Elfman’s last small-screen gig was the short-lived CBS sitcom Accidentally on Purpose.
