Written by Abby Gewanter (a writer on "Pushing Daisies" and "John from Cincinnat"), "Now What?" is a single-camera half-hour project about a young woman who pens a blog post called "Dear Mom, Here's Why I Hate You..." The mother in question, played by Fonda, decides to move in with her daughter in order to force the two of them to work out their problems.
Mike Tollin and Ben Spector are executive producing alongisde Scott Ellis ("2 Broke Girls"), who will also direct.
Fonda played the tough Leona Lansing in four episodes of Aaron Sorkin's latest series, the CEO of the company that owns the cable news network on which Will McAvoy's (Jeff Daniels) show airs, clashing with the protagonist over the content of his revamped hour. Here's Fonda's character telling a joke involving Jesus, Moses and a golf game.
