Per the report, the series will focus on Carol Dannhauser (Chenoweth), “a mother, wife, and waitress in Appleton, Wisconsin, who gets her deepest satisfaction from small-town stardom at her community theater. Her status is threatened, however, when a struggling New York chorus girl moves back home with dreams of her own.”

Paul Rudnick (In & Out) will executive produce alongside Chenoweth, and Dan Jinks (American Beauty), who worked with the actress on ABC’s Pushing Daisies.
