The US TV network ABC is developing a new series with the creator of the “New Girl” comedy show, as well as the producer and actress, Zoe Lister-Jones. The two women, who have worked together before, will co-produce “Woman Up,” if the network picks up the show from its pilot.
US entertainment media reports that ABC has given a put pilot order to a new comedy show from Zoe Lister-Jones (“New Girl”). The single-camera show, called “Woman Up,” follows the lives of two former teen moms who, after giving their all to see their kids through high school, are now 37 years old and ready to make up for the youth they missed out on.
Although also known as an actress, Zoe Lister-Jones will write and executive produce the project. She will be joined by “New Girl” creator, Elizabeth Meriwether, who will also executive produce alongside Jason Winer and Jon Radler for Small Dog Picture Company. The two women previously worked together on “New Girl” in 2015, when Zoe Lister-Jones played the colorful character, Fawn Moscato, in season four of the show.
Aside from her acting career, Zoe Lister-Jones has written several films in which she also starred, including the 2017 movie “Band Aid,” 2015’s “Consumed” and 2012’s “Lola Versus.”
In 2015, Zoe Lister-Jones joined the cast of the CBS sitcom “Life in Pieces,” taking one of the leading roles. Elizabeth Meriwether reteamed with another former “New Girl” star, Lake Bell, with whom she co-wrote the screenplay for the TV movie, “Bless This Mess” in 2018.
