It’s the first WB scripted format to be commissioned for a local version in the country. Polyphon will produce an eight-episode season to premiere in 2013.

The half-hour comedy series ran on CBS from 2006-10 and received nine Emmy nominations, including a win for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ portrayal of working single mother Christine.
