Upfronts: ABC developing “In the Motherhood”

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.
