EXCLUSIVE: ABC has put in development Jenni, a multi-camera family comedy starring Mexican-American singer-songwriter Jenni Rivera. It hails from leading Broadway producer Robert L. Boyett — marking his return to television, where he was one of the top comedy series producers in the 1980s and 1990s — and Robert Horn (Designing Women). Boyett and Horn will write the project, which stars Rivera as a strong, middle-class, single Latina woman working to raise a family using unique parenting skills, while struggling to run a family business and navigate her extended, co-dependent relatives — all while fighting the cultural perception that she needs a man to do it. Boyett and Horn will executive produce, with Rivera and her manager Pete Saldago serving as producers for ABC Studios. Read More »
