Iliza Shlesinger Toplines ABC Comedy
Comedian Iliza Shlesinger will be working with ABC Studios in developing Forever 31, which was written by and will star Shlesinger. According to Deadline, Shlesinger will be working with Sex and The City writer, Cindy Chupack.
The article states the Forever 31 will follow the comedian, playing a version of herself, as a comedian who struggles with the daily obstacles that come with being an adult alongside her friends, who we would assume would be other comedians.
As the youngest, and first female winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2008, Iliza has built up a pretty sizeable and impressive resume – including numerous late night appearances, hosting the syndicated dating show Excused, along with two comedy specials for Netflix (War Paint in 2013, and Freezing Hot due out in 2015).
