The Bachelorette writer-director Leslye Headland will write a single-camera comedy for NBC, in which a failed political blogger restarts her life in NYC as the “sex” editor for a prestigious and provocative women’s magazine. The project counts Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, and Ruben Fleischer among its executive producers. “Cosmo was a must read for me growing up,” Headland said. “Under Joanna’s influence, the magazine embodies topics for every modern female, which makes this a perfect union.”
The comedy, from Universal Television, the District and Cosmopolitan, also is executive produced by Headland, David Bernad and Joanna Coles, with Holly Whidden serving as co-producer.
