ABC Suffering From 'Middle Age Rage'

Standing up for middle-aged women everywhere, veteran writer-producer Cheryl Holliday has sold a single-camera comedy to ABC entitled Middle Age Rage.

Produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television and written by Holliday, Middle Age Rage tells the story of a middle-aged wife and mother who, having had enough of feeling invisible, decides to speak up and demand the respect she feels she's earned. This is a very personal project for Holliday, as it reflects her frustration with the way that the average middle-aged female is treated, both in the entertainment business and the world in general.

In her previous dealings with DreamWorks Television, Holliday has developed a number of potential projects and landed a pair of cast-contingent pilot orders in 2006. A former writer and co-executive producer on FOX's King Of The Hill, she earned two Daytime Emmy Award nominations as an executive producer on Nickolodeon series Kung Fu Panda, also produced by DreamWorks Animation. Her other credits include comedies such as Mike & Molly, Still Standing, Martin, and one of my personal favorites, The Norm Show starring Norm MacDonald.

She does have a point in that middle-aged women are woefully overlooked, in life as well as on television and film. Will this new project help to alleviate the problem?
