ABC Buys Sitcom From Bride Wars Writers

Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael, the women responsible for bringing you that nightmarish film Bride Wars, have signed a deal with ABC for a single-camera comedy.  The show will be called Walk of Shame and centers around the usual suspects, a bunch of friends in their twenties in New York.  The twist, if you can call it that, is that each episode will open with an embarrassing scene and then use flashbacks to explain how things got that way.  Sounds a bit like How I Met Your Mother meets Friends meets every show ever, etc.

Wilson was on Saturday Night Live for a spell, and apparently the two best friends met in a clown class at NYU, according to Deadline. Bride Wars was pretty much an affront to humanity, so let's hope Walk of Shame isn't similarly terrible, but you know what they say, sell-me-dreck-disguised-as-genius once, shame on you... sell-me-dreck-disguised-as-genius twice, shame on me.  And believe me, there's nothing I like to see more than women writers getting jobs, but Bride Wars was terrible, offensive and hateful towards women.  I understand the pursuit of the almighty dollar, and how quickly a script can spin out of your control in the midst of production and hundreds of different people being involved, but let's actively try to be part of the good in the world.
