Yesterday, I got my knuckles rapped for making a fat joke about Chris Christie.
So I offer this story from Deadline Hollywood straight up, without any snark. Here’s the skinny:
ABC wrapped a flurry of pilot orders today with a pickup of “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, a (slightly) larger, strong-willed mother raising her flawed family of three in a wealthy town filled with “perfect” wives and their “perfect” offspring. Dunn and Kaplan executive produce.
It’s unclear who the First Fattest Housewife in Westport is. Or if either of them know Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, hedge fund billionaire on the other TV show now highlighting Westport, Showtime’s “Billions.”
