ABC just added another comedy pilot. Deadline reports that the network has given a pilot order to a single-cam comedy from former Friends writers/producers Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer called Three Rivers. Here’s the logline:
Three Rivers centers on Rebecca who left her family’s Texas ranch years ago to work at an upscale hotel in New York, but after being promised ownership of the ranch by her smooth-talking cowboy dad Beau, she’s back and ready to utilize her big city tactics to turn their rustic ranch into a destination spot oozing Southern hospitality. Getting her siblings to fall in line with her vision will be the real thorn in Rebecca’s side. And that’s going to be even harder once Beau reveals a life-changing family secret.
In addition to Friends, Bilsing-Graham and Kreamer have worked on sitcoms including Joey, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which they also co-created. They had a Fox pilot in the works back in 2016 called The Enforcers with Reno 911! alum Niecy Nash attached to star. In addition to Three Rivers, ABC ordered two other single-cam comedy pilots this week from Liz Meriwether, J.J. Philbin, and Kristin Newman.
