Take a quick bite of the latest TV news in 300 words.
Score one for Sofia Vergara Modern Family
star, Sofia Vergara, is teaming up with producer Ben Silverman (The Office
) to adapt the popular Spanish series Aqui no hay quien viva
(I Hate This Place
). The series will be a single camera sitcom that focuses on a strict father and flaky son who have to overcome their differences to run an apartment complex full of wacky tenants.
Ben Silverman was behind the successful adaptation of The Office
, and if he uses his same mojo, this series could be a perfect companion piece for Modern Family
. ABC is desperate to build up their Wednesday night comedy block and so far only 3 efforts have stuck: Modern Family, The Middle and Cougar Town
. The tentatively titled I Hate This Place
could be the show that cements ABC Wednesday night as the new "Must See TV" comedy block. [Deadline
]The Kardashian Franchise That Could
As if they haven't dominated reality TV enough with their shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians
and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami
, now it's being reported that sisters Kim and Kourtney are teaming up for their own reality show. The show, Kim and Kourtney Take New York
, will focus on the sister's (and Kourtney's incorrigible boyfriend Scott) current migration to the Big Apple.
If you've ever watched any Kardashian TV incarnation then you know how vapid and mind numbing these people can be. However, if you've watched then you also know how incredibly (and embarrassingly) addictive it can be to follow this family. Will you be watching? [THR
Huge Not Huge Enough For ABC Family
ABC Family's series, Huge
, about teens at a weight-loss camp series has been canceled. Although the network had high hopes, the ratings for Huge were tiny. This is kind of sad news because series star Nikki Blonsky was really fun to watch and the series felt like it was just getting underway. The series focused on overweight teens but treated the sensitive subject matter with humor and heart. That is more than I can say about this season's abysmal Mike & Molly
which is just one weight joke after the other. RIP Huge
