Michelle Pfeiffer, Katie Couric, ‘Murphy Brown’ Creator Diane English Pitching Comedy About TV News

Michelle Pfeiffer, Katie Couric, 'Murphy Brown' Creator Diane English Pitching Comedy About TV News

The dream team of Michelle Pfeiffer, Katie Couric, and "Murphy Brown" creator Diane English is currently shopping around a comedy series about the morning TV news business.

Based on Couric’s experiences, the series would focus on the behind-the-scenes action of a fictional TV show. The former "Today" anchor would executive produce the comedy, which would be written and produced by English. 

Perhaps because it would mark Pfeiffer’s first starring role on TV, the trio are being selective, pitching exclusively to HBO, Showtime, AMC, Netflix, and Amazon.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed for this one.
