ABC has given out a pilot order for the multi-cam comedy “Kids Matter Now.”
Written and executive produced by Shana Goldberg-Meehan, the series follows a diva boss with no patience for working parents who adopts a baby and has a change of heart, casting her mother-of-three assistant as an unlikely mentor and upending the office dynamics.
Christine Gernon is attached to direct the pilot. CBS Television Studios and 20th Century Fox Television will produce.
Goldberg-Meehan previously created the NBC sitcom “Joey,” the Matt LeBlanc-led spinoff of “Friends.” Goldberg-Meehan also worked on “Friends” as a writer and eventually executive producer. She also created the ABC comedy “Better With You.” Her other credits include “Mad About You,” “Speechless,” and “Hot in Cleveland.”
