Get ready to make a date with ABC next year. The network is developing a new comedy series based on the popular Dealbreaker relationship blog and book, reports Deadline.com.
Created by Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson, the site and tome have been described as a "hilarious reference guide to the qualities that, when discovered, transform the 'date you hope to go home with' into the 'date you pray never calls again.'"
In other words, all the little warning signs – aka dealbreakers – that indicate the relationship isn't going to have legs.
"American Dad" writers Nahnatchka Khan and Laura McCreary will script the TV series, which, Deadline notes, has nothing to do with the "30 Rock" fictitious dating-advice show built around character Liz Lemon’s catchphrase, “That’s a dealbreaker, ladies."
