Book about couple struggling with failed marriage

Howard J. Morris and Jenny Lee have sold a half-hour script to ABC based on their book “Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid.”

Tome centers on a couple each struggling with a past failed marriage looking to get it right the second time around.

Morris has a history at ABC, having created sitcom “In Case of Emergency” and exec producing “According to Jim” and co-exec producing “My Wife and Kids.” He also was co-exec producer of USA Network series “The Starter Wife.”

Lee was a staff writer on “Samantha Who?” and is the author of three books of humor essays.

“This is in the vein of ‘Mad About You,’ a real romantic comedy,” Morris said. “We really wanted to go to ABC. It feels like our creative home, and they totally got the book.”

Morris and Elliot Webb will exec produce. Lee will co-exec produce.
