Co-written by Beard and Guy Endore-Kaiser (Comedy Central Roast of James Franco), the untitled half-hour centers on Dr. Olivia Boudreau (Beard), a hard-charging, 35-year-old Doogie Howser-style prodigy. When she has a complete breakdown in the operating room and loses her medical license, she is forced to move in with her estranged hippie mom and her mom’s two best friends, who team up to help get her back on her feet while teaching her all the life lessons she missed by going to med school.
Beard and Endore-Kaiser executive produce alongside Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver of Point Grey. Sony Pictures TV, where Point Grey is under an overall deal, is the studio.
The project reunites Sausage Party co-writers/producers Rogen and Goldberg with Beard, who voiced a character in the raunchy animated comedy.
