LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Former Profiler star Ally Walker has landed a new gig as a single mom searching for Mr. Right in a new comedy pilot for ABC.
My Wonderful Lifeis based on a British series about a single mother struggling to balance her career and family, while looking for a romantic partner, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The pilot is being written by Jenji Kohan and executive produced by Suzanne Bukinik for Touchstone TV and Granada TV. The single mother will work in a blue-collar job and the show will focus on lower-middle-class working people.
Theres a lot of humor in her struggling just to make it and that was very appealing to me, especially with a female lead that is a strong, independent person, says Kohan.
