More development news today as The Hollywood Reporter states comedian/actress/writer Andrea Savage has sold the single-camera comedy "Re-Together" to ABC.
The unique concept of the series is said to revolve around a couple with two young children who are divorced for thirty years before getting back together in their 60 with their children now grown. It is unclear whether the series will straddle the two different timelines with flashbacks or simply stick with the present day. Savage will write and star in the project, while joining Jamie Tarses ("Happy Endings") as producer for Sony Pictures Television.
Savage has been a clutch player in the comedy world for a number of years, nearly stealing the show with roles in the Will Ferrell / John C. Reilly comedy "Step Brothers," the ensemble poker comedy "The Grand," and most recently in the Steve Carrell film "Dinner For Schmucks" (spoiler: she was NOT one of the schmucks). On television, she has landed guest appearances on Showtime's "House of Lies" and ABC's "Modern Family," as well as the recent Steve Levitan/Joe Port/Joe Wiseman Fox comedy pilot "Rebounding."
In addition to her film and television roles, Savage is a mainstay writer and performer on the website "Funny or Die," most recently teaming with Judy Greer and Kate Beckinsdale to convey the important political message "Republicans, Get In My Vagina!"
