NBC Buys Working Mom Comedy From ‘Inside Out’ Writer

NBC is conquering one of society’s current favorite taboos and has signed a script development deal for “Poog,” a half-hour comedy about the struggles of being the best parent.

Written and exec produced by “Inside Out” and “Captain Marvel’s” Meg LeFauve and also exec produced by “A to Z” creator Ben Queen, the single-camera ensemble project hails from Warner Bros. Television. It follows a working mom who tries to get over her obsession with being the “perfect parent” by banding with her friends to admit, and even celebrate, the messy reality of parenting. As they share their daily screw ups, their relationships deepen and their kids survive — and even thrive.

Writers Lorien McKenna and Christine Whitaker are co-exec producing.

LeFauve is repped by Verve, Charlie Gogolak of Zaftig Films, and David Krintzman of Morris, Yorn, Barnes, Levine, Krintzman, Rubenstein, Kohner & Gellman.

The news comes a day after the Pew Research Center released an exhaustive study on the perils of working parents.
