Cho turns to mom for Fox comedy script

Fox Broadcasting is developing a comedy script with comedienne Margaret Cho, who unhappily starred in the short-lived sitcom All-American Girl on ABC in 1994-95.

The ethnic, multigenerational family comedy is said to involve a character based on Cho's mother, whom she has made a fixture in her stand-up routine.

"I'm very excited about this project because, finally, I get to become my mother," said Cho, who would also executive-produce with Just Shoot Me writer Susan Dickes.

Cho describes the harrowing experience with All-American Girl in her concert film I'm the One That I Want, alleging that ABC pressured her to lose so much weight that it triggered kidney failure.

Good grief. I thought we'd seen the last of this untalented, unfunny bimbo. The only bright spot is that at least Brett Butler won't be Cho's co-star. Could you imagine the train wreck if those two appeared in a series together?

I love Margaret Cho - she's so talented and funny. Her mom sketches are so hillarious
