Friends veteran producing ABC political comedy

A former Friends producer is developing a politically themed comedy for ABC.

The network has given a pilot order to the untitled project, which Shana Goldberg-Meehan wrote and will executive-produce. It is described as an ensemble comedy set against a Washington backdrop.

This past development season, Goldberg-Meehan created and executive produced a comedy pilot for ABC that starred Marisa Coughlan and Kaley Cuoco as two very different sisters.

She cocreated, with Scott Silveri, the Friends spin-off Joey and served as executive producer/coshowrunner during the show's first season. Before that, Goldberg-Meehan spent eight seasons on Friends, rising through the ranks to executive producer/coshowrunner.

Too bad that "sisters" pilot didn't sell....maybe this one will. But, how MUCH politics will each episode focus on, so as not to "date" the series when (and IF) it reaches syndication and cable repeats?
