Anne Heche Sells Comedy to NBC with 'Hung' Co-Creator


Anne Heche Sells Comedy to NBC with 'Hung' Co-Creator


Anne Heche is reuniting with her 'Hung' co-creator, Colette Burson. This time around, the project will be more female-centric rather than their previous testosterone-fuelled collaboration that 'Hung' was. 

According to Deadline, the pair has sold a single-camera comedy to NBC, which would also be a potential starring-vehicle for Heche. 

The untitled project, which has received a script commitment from the peacock network, centers around Beauty Department Sales Manager Poppy Blake, 43 (Heche just turned 44, not-so-coincidentally), who questions everything about love and relationships. With the help of her hilariously opinionated sister Chelsea, her romantically deprived co-workers and an array of department store clients, Poppy turns a comic yet anthropological eye on what love and sex really mean for women.

Sounds kinda like 'Sex and the City' for the working woman, no?

Heche and Burson will co-write the comedy, which will be produced via Heche's first-look deal with Universal Television. Both will serve as executive producers. 

The project marks Burson's latest television project since she co-created 'Hung' which ran from 2009-2011 on HBO. She's also prepping a supernatural thriller at Showtime with 'Hung' co-creator Dmitry Lipkin. 

The comedy reunites Heche with NBC. She recently had a guest gig on rookie comedy 'The Michael J. Fox Show' and her starring role on 'Save Me,' which was canceled after one season.
