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.
