What we have always feared to be true about men and women is now being turned into a sitcom. According to Variety, the book 'Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid' by 'Samantha Who' writer Jenny Lee and 'According to Jim' executive producer Howard J. Morris is getting the small screen treatment from ABC.






What we have always feared to be true about men and women is now being turned into a sitcom. According to Variety, the book 'Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid' by 'Samantha Who' writer Jenny Lee and 'According to Jim' executive producer Howard J. Morris is getting the small screen treatment from ABC.

While the title suggests a co-ed boxing match played for yucks, Morris promises something more sophisticated. "This is in the vein of 'Mad About You,' not a real romantic comedy," he said. "We really wanted to go to ABC. It feels like our creative home, and they totally got the book." Morris and Elliot Webb will exec produce, while Lee will co-exec produce.

Still not sure what to expect? Publisher's Weekly gives a hint in their synopsis of the book: "In this comic relationship self-help, semi-functional (but self-aware) couple Lee and Morris-brandishing their credentials as 'a major nut bag' and 'a genuine dunce,' respectively-boil down the whole of male-female relationships to a simple, provocative statement, then go about examining the evidence and implications in an alternating, occasionally overlapping, he said-she said format." So, we're thinking lots of bickering. Because we've never seen that before.
