Jane Fonda to Star in New ABC Comedy

Hollywood legend Jane Fonda is returning to the small screen in a new comedy for ABC.

Jane Fonda

Entitled "Now What?", the project was brought to ABC via a spec script from "Pushing Daisies" writer Abby Gewanter, and will be executive produced by Mike Tollin ("Smallville", "One Tree Hill") and his company Tollin Productions. The single camera comedy series will center on Fonda as a mother attempting to reconnect with her daughter whether she likes it or not after the young woman writes a blog post entitled "Dear Mom, Here's Why I Hate You..." Scott Ellis ("2 Broke Girls") is attached to direct the pilot and executive produce.

The two-time Academy Award winning actress is perhaps best known for her numerous acclaimed roles in films such as "Klute," "Coming Home," "On Golden Pond," and "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Her more recent film role choices have been... questionable, like starring opposite Lindsay Lohan in "Georgia Rule" and the insipid "Monster In-Law" with Jennifer Lopez. More recently the actress gained high praise for her appearance on HBO's Aaron Sorkin political drama "The Newsroom" as ruthless media mogul Leona Lansing.

While the concept basically sounds like a female version of "$#*! My Dad Says," this has to be considered a big 'get' for ABC, as this is a rare foray into television for the screen icon.
