ABC Buys Jimmy Kimmel/Carson Daly Comedy

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

After leading their late night offerings for years, Jimmy Kimmel along with Carson Daly has just sold a comedy project to ABC. Kimmel will write the pilot himself that follows a VJ that loses it all, which loosely follows the life of former MTV VJ Daly.

Interestingly, though they’re on different networks, Daly and Kimmel have been longtime friends since their time together at the radio station KROQ here in LA.
