ABC is working on a comedy inspired by Crazy Rich Asians

ABC is looking to ride the Crazy Rich Asians wave of success.

Thanks to the massive hit film Crazy Rich Asians, ABC is trying to ‘get a piece of that pie’. The network is looking to make a comedy series based on the recent romantic comedy. The hit film is based on the book by the same name.

ABC has handed out a script-plus-penalty commitment for an untitled comedy from writer Jessica Gao. This writer recently took home the best animated program Emmy for writing the “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty.

According to the report the show will be a single camera one. It was pitched with the title Lazy Rich Asians and revolves around Janet Zhao. She is a first-generation Chinese-American woman who struggles to set healthy boundaries with her crazy, exhausting family.

When her wealthy grandmother dies and names Janet the sole inheritor, she suddenly finds herself the unwilling new matriarch of the family. The same relatives she’s spent her life trying to keep at a distance.

“There are [Asian-centric] projects in development right now, but they’re not going to greenlight these things unless our movie does well. If our movie does well, four projects will go into production or at least get greenlighted within three weeks. If it doesn’t, they’re going to be in unknown states, and that’s scary,” said Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu in an intreview with The Hollywood Reporter.

The t.v. project comes thanks to the success that the film itself has in a matter of weeks.

Crazy Rich Asians has done more than well.

The order for the comedy comes as Crazy Rich Asians has defied box-office expectations. The rom-com has grossed more than $164.3 million worldwide (with $135.8 million of that domestically). The budget for the movie was $30 million.

Gao will pen the script and executive produce the CBS Television Studios and Imagine TV effort. She will do so alongside the latter company’s Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Samie Kim Falvey.

The is no word yet for when the project could see the light of day.
