Arianna Huffington Partners for ABC TV Comedy
Internet and political maven Arianna Huffington is venturing into TV producing in a partnership with "How I Met Your Mother" executive producer Greg Malins. A comedy that they are working on has landed at ABC and is being produced by 20th Century Fox TV.
The project centers on the friendship of three freshman members of Congress -- two men and a woman -- who live together in D.C. It will draw inspiration from real-life Washington figures.
Malins will write the script and executive produce it with Huffington and Huffington Post founding editor Roy Sekoff. Recently, the broadcast networks have been pursuing D.C.-based projects, including pilots "House Rules" at CBS," and "Inside the Box" at ABC among others. None has made it to the series stage.
