“Sex and the City” writer Cindy Chupack has partnered with producer JoAnn Alfano (“30 Rock”) to create a new anthology series for NBC.
The one-hour romantic comedy project will contain between one and three stories each week, as well as an animated short, all connected by the same theme.
Chupack said she and Alfano are still experimenting with the project and haven’t decided whether a repertory company will handle the acting, or if different actors will appear each week. (Chupack said the network was excited over the idea of attracting stars who aren’t interested in series TV but would be willing to make a one-shot appearance).
The scribe said the show also may rely on a staff of writers but also option work — such as a one-act play.
Chupack’s credits also include “Men in Trees,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Madigan Men.”
