ABC seems to be turning to bookshelves for TV show inspiration.
According to TV Guide, "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman Palladino is said to be working on a new drama for the network based on the New York Times best-selling book "The Nanny Diaries." ABC is reportedly close to ordering the script.
"Nanny Diaries" was also made into a 2007 movie starring Scarlett Johansson and "Captain America" Chris Evans, but TV Guide notes that this show will likely stick closer to the 2002 book, written by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. The series would follow a group of nannies who work for Manhattan's upper class families.
That's not the only literary script ABC has its eyes on. According to Variety, the network has ordered a script that could turn the 2011 film "The Lincoln Lawyer," starring Matthew McConaughey, into a TV series.
