Monica Potter’s Pilot Starring Eddie Cibrian Not Going Forward at NBC
Sad news, Monica Potter and Eddie Cibrian fans! NBC and Warner Bros. TV have decided not to move forward with their untitled comedy pilot starring Monica and Eddie, according to TVLine.
The series — which had Ellen DeGeneres on board as an executive producer — was created by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer (I Hate My Teenage Daughter), and was loosely based off of Monica’s life. Monica was set to play Bridget, a woman juggling her family life and three ex-husbands, portrayed by Eddie Cibrian, Donald Faison, and Rory Scovel, respectively.
So why did the studio and the network decide to pull the plug on the project and push it back to next season? After a recent table read through, they determined that the series had not reached its potential and needed to be redeveloped, Deadline reports.
There’s no word yet on whether the series has been delayed or canceled for good, but hopefully it’s not the end of the road for the Parenthood star’s project. We so need more female-driven comedies on television!
