Carol Burnett Is Heading Back to TV in an Amy Poehler-Produced Comedy
Deadline reports that after a very competitive bidding war, the multi-camera comedy has been picked up by ABC with a put pilot commitment. The show, which is written and executive produced by Michael Saltzman, will also be executive produced by Poehler through her Paper Kite banner.
The untitled show is about a family, who is offered the chance to buy the house of their dreams, something they would ordinarily never be able to afford, but there’s a catch. The family must live with the previous owner, Burnett’s character, until she dies.
