I thought I read JOHN instead of JOAN. Don't get me wrong --- I love these Cusack siblings.
But I would have really been more excited if John was the one developing the TV series. Then again, what are the chances? He's a film guy, not a TV guy.
Anyway...hooray for Joan. She's back on TV, seven or so years after What About Joan was canceled (a series I haven't seen, by the way. I've been looking for it everywhere!)
Joan Cusack has lined up two TV projects, developing a comedy at NBC set in the world of psychiatry and starring opposite Mae Whitman in the Lifetime original movie "Acceptance."Can you get your brother on your show, Joan, please? He'd be perfect for that psychiatry comedy!
The NBC project, which she is co-creating with the network and Universal Media Studios, will be based on an original idea of Cusack's. John Markus ("The Larry Sanders Show") is serving as writer/executive producer, while Cusack will produce with Julie Yen. --- THR
