Lifetime TV to Air Catastrophe and Develop Dramedy from Wilfred’s Jason Gann
Lifetime, along with half of cable TV, continuing its foray int comedy.
Having dipped its toe into the comedic waters with Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever and the Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell faux-Lifetime style drama A Deadly Adoption, Lifetime is now bringing in more programming that’s atypical from what their brand has been for years.
First off, they’ll be the first network to air Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney’s Catastrophe on linear U.S. television (Catastrophe is currently only available in the States on Amazon). That will happen sometime early next year.
Secondly, Wilfred co-creator and star Jason Gann is developing a new dramedy currently called Breeders that explores the high school nature of becoming a suburban mom.
Both developments seem to, as far as we can tell right now, bode well for Lifetime.
