TV Land

TV Land announced that it has signed a script development deal with Warner Horizon Television, John Wells Productions (Shameless, ER, The West Wing) and executive producer/writer/director John Riggi (30 Rock, The Comeback) for a half-hour single-camera period comedy project inspired by the life of Kyle Richards (Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). Currently in development, the project is set in the '70s and inspired by Richards’ unconventional upbringing by her mom, a single mother who alone raised Richards and her two sisters. Riggi will write the pilot script and executive produce along with John Wells and Andrew Stearn (Shameless, Southland, The West Wing). The project is a dark comedy about a woman's struggle to raise her family and claim her own brand of independence in a world not ready to give it. Richards will co-executive produce. The untitled project centers on Bonnie Nolan, 40 years old with a beautiful home and three beautiful daughters to go with it. However, she also has a cheating husband. Finding herself alone after her marriage fails, Bonnie is an enigma of the times: a single woman with no means to support herself or her children.
