Jane Fonda to Star in ABC Comedy Now What?

Jane Fonda to Star in ABC Comedy Now What?

As reported by Deadline, Jane Fonda will be starring in her first series ever for ABC.

After a guest spot on HBO’s Newsroom this season, Fonda is attached to star in ABC’s comedy Now What? Currently in development, the show follows Fonda’s character, a mother who is moving back in with her daughter. The catch is that the daughter has recently written a blog post entitled “Dear Mom, Here’s Why I Hate You…” This sounds like it’ll be an awkward living situation.

The script is written by Abby Gewanter. 

We're all on board to see Fonda headline a weekly TV series and a comedy.  Let's hope this one happens.
