Ellen & Vance DeGeneres create show for WB

As if Ellen doesn't have enough to do with her wildly popular talk show, she is also going to find time to write a new weekly comedy for WB. Ellen is going to share the writing responsibilities with her brother, Vance, one of my all-time favorite reporters from The Daily Show. The half-hour, live-action sitcom features a family from two points of view: the humans and the pets. Ellen will voice one of the animal characters. It's a goofy idea that I might laugh off if it didn't have such strong comedic power behind it. Especially Vance. That guy is hi-larious. So far, plans for the show only have him listed as a writer but I sure would love to see him back on television. In the press release, Vance says that any creative differences will be solved by their mom.
