Are cutie patoodie duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children on a roll or what? The husband and wife creative partners have sold another show to ABC via their Mijolo Productions company! And this one is called … Poor Pam!
Exclusively revealed today via Deadline.com , “Ripa and Consuelos have teamed with writing duo Andrew Leeds and David Lampson, creators of last season’s pilot Brenda Forever, for a half-hour comedy project with a female protagonist, Poor Pam.
The shows centers on Poor Pam, that friend everyone feels bad for. Single, unemployed, almost broke, living in the shadow of her famous sister — everyone has it better than Pam. But that doesn’t get her down. Poor Pam always looks on the bright side of life, and she’s always ready to go another round, no matter how many times she gets dropped on her ass.
Leeds and Lampson will write the script and executive produce with Ripa and Consuelos. The project was developed internally at Ripa and Consuelos’ Milojo Prods with Albert Bianchini, who oversees the company’s projects. This marks Milojo’s second sale to ABC in the past month. The company, also as previously reported, has a multi-cam comedy written by former General Hospital: Nightshift head writer Sri Rao.”
So, who should play the title role in Poor Pam? What do you think about hot television executive producers, Ripa an Consuelos?
