A put-pilot commitment from Fox.
The Office‘s Angela Kinsey and The Hangover‘s Rachael Harris, along with Glee co-executive producer Stacy Traub, are producing a comedy pilot based on Harris and Kinsey’s long friendship, our sister site Deadine reports.
Fox reportedly won a bidding war for the sitcom, titled Dirty Blondes, which follows two women (played by Kinsey and Harris) who’ve been friends for nearly two decades. When both get divorced, their friendship strengthens.
The concept draws from the experiences of both actresses, who met at Los Angeles’ Groundlings improv troupe and who have each gone through a divorce in the recent past.
Traub, who created ABC’s short-lived Notes From the Underbelly (co-starring Harris), will write the pilot and will co-executive produce Blondes, along with Harris, Kinsey and Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland). Fleischer also will direct the pilot.
As NBC’s The Office begins its final season, Kinsey is the second Dunder Mifflin employee to nab a new potential project: Rainn Wilson will headline the Office planted spin-off The Farm if it goes to series.Follow @kimroots
