The project hails from Warner Bros. Television and Nader, who has an overall deal at the studio, on board as an executive producer alongside Danielle Stokdyk and Rob Thomas.
Written by Nader, Smedley and Hensley, the untitled series will see Smedley and Hensley continue to push comedic boundaries with their unapologetically honest take on marriage and motherhood, proving that friendship is the “secret sauce.”
In addition to creating the digital series #IMOMSOHARD, Hensley and Smedley published a New York Timesd bestselling book of the same title in April 2019, and their comedy special is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Nader served as the showrunner on the CBS comedy “2 Broke Girls.” Her other credits include writing for and producing “The King of Queens,” “Dharma & Greg,” and “Spin City.”
