ABC orders Kari Lizer pilot

Family comedy hails from Warner Bros. TV

ABC has picked up the pilot for a comedy from Kari Lizer and Warner Bros. TV.

The untitled half-hour multicamera project concerns a high-powered female executive who has dominated corporate America for years, facing the biggest challenge of her life: finding herself unemployed and acting as a full-time mom to her two teenagers.

Last week, Lizer landed a pilot order from NBC for a project about two femme friends, also from Warner Bros. TV.

Lizer was creator and exec producer of the CBS laffer “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”
