Transparent creator Jill Soloway is dipping her toes in the MTV pool, where she’s developing a buddy comedy with #HotMessMoves’ Ashley Skidmore and Lyle Friedman. The nameless project spotlights two women who meet at a camp and are struck by lightning, according to Variety. Sharing a passion for feminism, the protagonists will try to save womankind ten years after the incident. Skidmore and Friedman will write and executive-produce, while Soloway, who said she’s the show’s “godmother,” will serve as co-EP. Insert your own joke about lightning striking twice for Soloway; we are busy marveling at the chance the leads might have legit superpowers.
