The 2nd Fattest Housewife In Westport

Hey, it’s not me talking. Here’s the Deadline Hollywood website:

This is a contender for the catchiest project title this pitch season: ABC has put in development “The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport,” a single-camera family comedy from novelist/TV writer Sarah Dunn, producer Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios.

“The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport” is narrated by Katie, who is being described as a (slightly) larger wife and mother raising her flawed family of 3 in a wealthy town filled with “perfect” wives and their “perfect” offspring.

So what’s the deal? Is this just a coincidental made-up name, the TV equivalent of Andy Griffith’s Mayberry or Beaver Cleaver’s Mayfield?

It can’t be our Westport. The 2nd fattest housewife here works out every day at Joyride.

  1. This is an interesting story. I can’t wait to see if the show gets picked up. I’d binge watch that on Netflix!

  2. No, She works out at Soul Cycle.

    That’s absolutely hysterical! Sure sounds like it’s Fairfield County, but this Westport is like any mirage. Looks real, but the reality is just an illusion. (of perfect people and perfect children)
