Jim Parson’s production company is teaming up with ABC on developing a new comedy series!
ABC has given a put pilot order to “Lakeside VA,” a comedy hailing from Jim Parsons’ That’s Wonderful Productions and writer Shelly Gossman, Variety has learned.
“Lakeside VA” follows a C+ team of VA hospital employees who are underfunded, understaffed, and stopped overworking themselves to make up for it years ago, until a new hotshot female chief of surgery steps in to turn them into an A team.
The idea is inspired by Gossman’s personal experiences and first-hand accounts from veterans and VA staff across the country. Her father is a Vietnam veteran, and she worked a day job at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in her early twenties.
