Cartoon Marriage Script is bought by ABC Studios

Cartoon Marriage, the book I did with my husband  Michael Maslin,  based on our life together as New Yorker cartoonists, is in the process of becoming a television show. Just last night we heard that ABC Studios bought the script as written by the wonderful and talented Terri Minsky (Lizzie McGuire and Less Than Perfect creator). It all began about a year ago, when actress Jennifer Garner saw our book (via our agent, David Kuhn) and fell in love with the idea.  The show will be produced by Jennifer’s production company, Vandalia Films. We are thrilled.  To read about it, go to Deadline Hollywood, or Hollywood Reporter

So far, it’s been a fun and wild ride interacting with Hollywood. All good so far. I love entering into new fields, trying new things. We got to meet Terri Minsky for a day at our home, and it was great fun. She is hilarious and thoughtful and I know is writing a wonderful script. We are crossing our fingers for the next step! My hope is that the world is ready for another terrific comedy with lots of playful humor, and it will become a show that brings laughs and diversion.
