 'My Best Friend Is A Lesbo' gets Greenlight from NBC

A semiautobiographical comedy based on the real-life friendship of writers and longtime roommates Sascha Rothchild and Randi Barnes is being developed for NBC. The show will be cheekily titled 'My Best Friend Is A Lesbo.' The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire studio, is about two female best friends — one gay, one straight — who become roommates and help each other navigate life, love, and dating in Los Angeles.

A semiautobiographical comedy based on the real-life friendship of writers and longtime roommates Sascha Rothchild and Randi Barnes is being developed for NBC. The show, according to Deadline.com, will be cheekily titled My Best Friend Is a Lesbo. The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire studio, is about two female best friends — one gay, one straight — who become roommates and help each other navigate life, love, and dating in Los Angeles. Rothchild and Barnes will coauthor the script. This is a rare pairing of the two, who are not a writing team.

According to Deadline, Rothchild recently sold her feature film Who Invited Her?  to DreamWorks (Reese Witherspoon will star in it), and she is writing a screenplay based on her book How to be Divorced By 30. Barnes co-wrote the upcoming animated feature Dorothy of Oz (which stars Lea Michele). Fake Empire is responsible for two current TV hits, Chuck and Gossip Girl.
