The network has ordered six half-hour episodes of the comedy set to premiere in March 2015. The Foster duo, who are the daughters of music producer David Foster, will play sisters born into the Hollywood lifestyle trying to navigate their careers and dating lives while maintaining perfect public images.
“When we sat down to come up with the concept and story behind ‘Barely Famous,’ we kept referring to shows like ‘The Larry Sanders Show,’ ‘Extras’ and ‘The Comeback’ as influences,” the Fosters said. “By design, the show pokes fun at the reality show genre as we play these stereotypical, delusional sisters who find themselves shooting a reality show, while also refusing to admit it to their friends.”
Erin Foster has written for NBC’s “The New Normal” and appeared in shows including “Reno 911!” and “The O.C.,” and is currently writing a feature film for Universal. Sara Foster has appeared as an actress in CW’s “90210” as well as “Entourage” and films including “The Big Bounce” and “D.E.B.S.”
Jason Carbone and Nick Lee for Good Clean Fun serve as EPs for “Barely Famous,” along with Oly Obst, Josh Lieberman and Kimberly Carver for 3 Arts, Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Fernando Mills and Tricia Biggio for VH1 and Sara and Erin Foster.
