Paul Feig to Produce, Direct Female Tech Entrepreneur Comedy Series in Development at Freeform

Freeform is developing a comedy series about female tech entrepreneurs with “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig attached to direct and executive produce.

“Girls Code” is described as a half-hour women-in-the workplace comedy about an antisocial tech CEO and an outspoken feminist non-profit warrior who must put aside their issues with each other in order to mastermind a groundbreaking, all-women tech incubator.

The series was created by Kim Rosenstock, with Joy Gorman Wettels of Anonymous Content bringing the original idea to Feig and Rosenstock. It is inspired by female coders, robotic scientists, and social entrepreneurs. Along with Feig, Rosenstock and Gorman Wettels will also executive produce along with Jessie Henderson of Feigco Entertainment. Paramount Television will produce in association with Anonymous Content.

Rosenstock got her start on the Fox comedy series “New Girl,” working her way up to writer and supervising producer. She is also the writer and executive producer on an untitled comedy project at NBC. Amy Poehler will also executive produce that project, which tells the story of a newly single mother who is forced to rely on the last people she wants help from—her family. NBC gave the project a put pilot commitment.

In addition to directing “Bridesmaids,” Feig is known for writing and directing comedy films like “Spy” and the female reboot of “Ghostbusters.” He also created the cult classic TV series “Freaks and Geeks” and has previously directed episodes of series like “30 Rock,” “The Office,” “Weeds,” and “Arrested Development.”

Rosenstock is repped by WME. Feig is repped by CAA.
