MTV has inked a development deal for a comedy comedy from Transparent creator Jill Soloway and the Upright Citizens Brigade duo Lyle Friedman and Ashley Skidmore (Younger). The untitled project is about two young girls who meet at summer camp and bond over their passion for second-wave feminism. During a wild night in the forest both girls are struck by lightning and their friendship, power and destiny is fatefully sealed. Now, 10 years later, they romp around town hell-bent on saving all of womankind (if only they could save themselves first).
Soloway, Robin Schwartz and Brillstein Entertainment Partners will executive produce and Friedman and Skidmore serving as co-executive producers. It has not been determined whether Friedman and Skidmore will write with Soloway supervising and whether Friedman and Skidmore will star.
“Lyle and Ashley have a magical ability to tap into the female psyche, and through their own special brand of truth and humor they absolve us of our most humiliating moments,” Soloway said. “I’m so excited to godmother this show and bring Lyle and Ashley’s fresh take on lady power to MTV.“
