Say what you want, but Debra Messing
is always the perfect actress for a comedy pilot!
The good thing is that folks from CBS share our opinion, because we learned that Will & Grace
star is set to play the female lead in their (yet) untitled (but previously known as Mother’s Day
) comedy which comes from Julie Rottenberg
and Elisa Zuritsky
Written by Rottenberg and Zuritsky (who served as co-executive producers on Messing’s Smash
), this untitled single-cam project is based on an Israeli format and will center on a married mom who struggles to balance family, work and life.
Not hard to guess that Messing is set to play that 40-year-old mom named Ella who, in order to successfully navigate through the demanding life of being a mother of three, a lover, a friend and a career woman, constantly lies her way out of and into situations – little lies, big lies, white and at times not-so-white lies.
Already sounds like a big mess!
Anyway, at the end of this report, let us also add that Rottenberg and Zuritsky will executive produce the pilot together with London-Dekel, Eden and Keshet’s Avi Nir and Ran Telem, while Messing will serve as a co-executive producer on the project.
As usual – for more updates – stay tuned!
