Finding the humor in TV’s grisly crime dramas, ABC has given a put pilot commitment to “Awkward” creator Lauren Iungerich’s comedic mystery about a thirtysomething female who solves crimes based on her encyclopedic knowledge of every true-crime TV special, police procedural and made-for-TV movie.
“Couch Detective” is a one-hour project that is (fittingly) exec produced by “CSI’s” Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman through their Jerry Bruckheimer Television banner in association with Warner Bros. Television. Iungerich is writing the pilot and also is exec producing. Bruckheimer TV’s KristieAnne Reed is co-exec producing.
Iungerich is repped by WME and Madhouse Entertainment.
