In recent years, TV Land, a cable network that was known to air classic sitcoms and reruns, has been branching out and coming up with its own original comedy television shows, such as “Hot in Cleveland” and “Jennifer Falls.” The network will be adding another original comedy to their programming, as Deadline reports that they are developing a new television series that will be created by comic improvisational duo Dana Goodman and Julia Wolov. Read on to learn more about this story.
The new comedy television show, which does not have a title yet, will star Dana Goodman and Julia Wolov as fictional versions of themselves. The series will be a little bit autobiographical, as it will be loosely based on the time that when they lived together after they broke up with their own respective boyfriends.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Voices, Goodman and Wolov have been friends and partners since 1995 when they met each other at a class at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic. They had a two-woman sketch show, and they were discovered by the famous actor and comedian Adam Sandler in 2002 at Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Since then, they have worked with Sandler on various projects, such as “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan” (2008), “Bedtime Stories” (2008), “Just Go With It” (2011) and “That’s My Boy” (2012).
However, the duo is best known for creating the MTV series “Faking It,” which premiered on April 22, 2014. The series follows two girl best friends who become famous after they pretend to be lesbian lovers.
The duo will also have a digital series on Comedy Central entitled “Biatches,” which will also premiere later in the year.
According to Deadline, the Goodman and Wolov project is the second time that the television network has lined up a comedic improvisational troupe to develop a series, as it has just ordered a pilot created by the comedic improvisational female group, The Katydids. The Katydids’ TV Land project is entitled “Teachers.”
And that’s it for the news on Dana Goodman and Julia Wolov’s new project with TV Land. For more news and updates on your favorite television shows, keep following Movie News Guide (MNG).
