Gail Lerner, writer of Will and Grace and co-executive producer of Ugly Betty, has sold CBS on the idea of a comedy centered on a book editor and her friends.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will be called Open Books. In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Lerner said:
“Publishing is a lot like sitcoms. Although both are supposedly dying, that only makes people more passionate about creating the next great novel or show.”What do you think about this idea? Would you watch it? Will anyone who’s not a writer, editor or connected to the publishing world watch it? Would you have written a comedy or a tragedy, a romance, or some other genre?
