Cue ignorant hordes with torches and pitchforks howling about the homosexual agenda:
NBC just announced they’re developing My Best Friend’s a Lesbo a girl buddy comedy about best friends–one straight, one lesbian–
who help one another navigate life, love and dating in Los Angeles.
The semi-autobiographical sitcom comes from longtime friends Randi Barnes and Sascha Rothchild. A seasoned TV writer, Barnes co-write the animated feature Dorothy of Oz, due out next year; Rothchild, who has also worked in television as a producer and creative consultant, has script Who Invited Her in development with Reese Witherspoon attached.
Homosexual agenda? Nope, reality. According a 2010 CBS News poll, 77% of Americans say they
have a close friend, work colleague or relative who is gay or lesbian. Just 22 percent say they do not know anyone at all who falls into that category.
While I’m not crazy about the show’s name, I love the premise, which is true and real. Life, love and dating have the same joys, pitfalls and pratfalls no matter who’s involved.
