Leahremini_2ABC saved a few development tidbits for its upfront presentation at Avery Fisher Hall today. One that stood out was ABC Entertainment prexy Steve McPherson confirming that the net is developing an adaptation of the online serial “In the Motherhood,” which stars Leah Remini (pictured left), Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler (pictured right) as typically harried moms.

This is the first I’ve heard of this thing, but the Internet shorts are sponsored by Suave and Sprint and are hosted by MSN at www.inthemotherhood.com.

Production looks high-end, as these things go.

As as harried journo-mom myself, I’ve got no time right now, but I’ll have to check ’em out when I’m off deadline — and after a certain 7-year-old’s bedtime.
