House Bunny scribes ink ABC deal - I need a cool creative process, too

House Bunny writers ink deal with ABCThe writing partners behind Legally Blonde, Ella Enchanted, and The House Bunny, opening in theaters tomorrow, have inked a deal with ABC Studios for a series about something they're familiar with -- them.

Screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith have sold a script about their crazy creative process, which, apparently, involves plenty of champagne and therapy, according to an L.A. Times column about the pair. ABC Studios took notice of the column and approached the duo about spinning a show out of it.

Now ABC Studios has the script and is developing a series about what it calls "their friendship, partnership, and (mis)adventures in Hollywood," reports The Hollywood Reporter. If it's a go, Lutz and Smith will pen the pilot and stay on as consulting producers.

This could be a fun show if it's handled right, something along the lines of Entourage. I'd rather see this in the hands of HBO or Showtime, but if it has to be a network, I guess ABC isn't too bad. They've had a good run with shows like Lost, Brothers and Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, and Desperate Housewives (According to Jim sure sticks out like a sore thumb, doesn't it?).

Anyway, their life sure sounds ripe for a fun series, doesn't it? Laptop time fueled by bottles of Leclerc Briant around a poolside deck ... ? I'll definitely check out the show if it gains traction. Come to think of it, my creative process could use a bit of an overhaul. I'm guessing no one will be knocking down my door for a series about me eating chocolate chip cookies while pounding the keyboard 24/7.

It seems like they have the ability to write heart warming, life affirming comedies. Hell, even the Catholic press seems to have enjoyed The House Bunny.

Now, if they can recreate for TV what they're doing in film, it could be a hit.

...I'm biting the bullet here, but I'm going to go ahead and say this a one-seasoner. A terrible one season.
