ABC Buys Lesbian-Straight Relationship Comedy From ‘Mindy Project’s Ed Weeks

The Mindy Project co-star Ed Weeks has sold a project as a writer, half-hour comedy Wing Person, which has been set up at ABC.

Co-written by Weeks and fellow Brit Hannah Mackay (Peep Show), Wing Person is the story of the co-dependent relationship between a lesbian lothario and her cautious, straight male best friend. Anne Brogan, Val Ames, Melanie Stokes and Siobhan Bachman are executive producing for London-based Kindle Entertainment.

Weeks stars as Dr. Jeremy Reed on The Mindy Project, which is now in its fourth season on Hulu. He’s also set to guest star on Showtime’s House Of Lies as Daniel Hathaway, a dapper auction-house CEO who tries to bid on Jeannie (Kristen Bell).

Weeks is repped by WME, United Agents, and attorney Jared Levine. Mackay is repped in the UK by Independent Talent Group.
