  1. I'll be looking to hear more about I Mom So Hard. Us moms need a little humor in our lives when we finally send our kiddies off to bed.

    1. they have a web series methinks, the sitcom will be based on it, I myself think Friends in Law could have potential with that plot :) History of Them will be very very multicultural. It seems Will and Grace success is returning multicams to the small screens!

    3. Single camera ones never really worked, they should only do multicams if you ask me :)
