Teen girl serial to air this summer

Former “Ellen” and “Roseanne” scribe Lawrence Broch has inked to write and produce an angst-filled animated soap called “S#!t Happens” for teen girl Web site Voxxy.com.

New serial will air beginning in the summer and then on television via interactive software on cable set-top boxes.

Show is being described as a spoof of the teen shows on Fox and the WB.

“In our show, every girl isn’t a size 2 and every problem doesn’t find a solution at the end of the episode,” said Voxxy co-founder Maxine Lapiduss. “Lawrence has a history of writing brilliantly funny dialogue for real people with interesting points of view.”

Voxxy also has an interactive series starring and produced by “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston, live concerts, a Spanish-English teen-oriented sitcom produced by Galan Entertainment and an interactive documentary-style show from Mary Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray, the creators of MTV’s “Real World” and “Road Rules.”

Lapiduss is the former producer and writer of “Ellen” and “Roseanne.”
