Fisher to topline ABC pilot ‘Loop’

'Ellen' thesp cast in midseason sitcom

Actress Joely Fisher has been tapped to star in a new Touchstone TV midseason pilot for ABC called “In the Loop.”

Fisher co-starred with Ellen DeGeneres in ABC’s now-canceled sitcom “Ellen,” and she appeared in another comedy pilot for NBC, “Wish You Were Here,” that did not get picked up for fall.

“In the Loop” is directed by James Burrows and executive produced by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, who have written for “Ellen” as well as “Murphy Brown” and “Roseanne.”

The sitcom is about a group of thirtysomething friends in Chicago, and Fisher plays a single, childless woman with a string of menial jobs.

Fisher is repped by Chuck James and Bob Gersh and manager Krost-Chapin.
