Pilot Scoop: ABC Picks Up Judy Greer Comedy

ABC is getting in bed with Judy Greer with its pick-up of American Judy, a single-camera comedy pilot which is to star and be executive-produced by the Arrested Development alumna.

Written by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (Can’t Hardly Wait), and with David Gardner also attached as an executive producer, American Judy stars Greer as a cosmopolitan woman who upon getting married becomes a “fish out of water” in the suburbs, where she has to juggle step-kids, her mother-in-law and her husband’s ex-wife (who also happens to be the town sheriff).

Greer, who is a member of the Archer voice cast, has in recent years starred or guested on sitcoms such as Mad Love, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family.

ABC’s other comedy pilot orders thus far include the Untitled Dan Fogelman Project (in which a family who moves to an upscale New Jersey berg discovers their neighbors are ETs), White Man Van (based on a British series of the same name) and How to Live With Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life (about a newly divorced mother who moves back in with her eccentric folks).
