Maid for Television

I bet you wake up every day of your life and wonder, "Gee, why don't they make a TV show out of that delightful Jennifer Lopez movie Maid in Manhattan?" Well, if that is the case, then your dreams are coming true.

The show, currently in development at ABC, will ditch the romancing the rich guy plot of the film and focus on the main character's work life. Read between the lines a bit and it is easy to see they are going for the whole Ugly Betty/young-Latina-making-her-way-in-the-Big-Apple vibe. Which means, considering the lack of diversity seen on television these days, this could be a good idea after all.

Also of note in the Hollywood Reporter article linked above: ABC is also working on a small screen version of The Witches of Eastwick. Now that sounds interesting ...
