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.
My, oh my… when you go on a blog hiatus, and then return for your
autumnal debut — you certainly know how to make an entrance!
(And you’ve been so secretive!)
Hurray, cheers, And congratulations!
We (your fans) look forward to the inside “scoop” as this all progresses.
I thought I was going to return to blogging with gusto last week, but things got away from me, as they are want to do! Anyway, we are excited, thanks!! I didn’t know if we could say anything until it now went public, so we jumped on the opportunity. Will keep you posted, for sure. cheers!
Congratulations! That’s such exciting news!
