from writer April Blair and executive producer Gavin Polone (Gilmore Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm, My Boys). The plot, as described by The Hollywood Reporter: “A case of mistaken identity has a dateless high school outsider living a double life as a twentysomething career girl in the corporate world.” Doesn’t that make you think back to 1991’s Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead (even if Christina Applegate’s character wasn’t dateless — hello, Josh Charles! — and the movie’s trailer doesn’t even mention that she gets a job)? Adding to my personal enthusiasm: Jane was Charisma Carpenter’s character’s name in See Jane Date (pictured), the first ABC Family Channel movie I remember thinking was genuinely good. It just feels right.I don’t think you have to be a woman in her mid-30s to be irrationally excited over this news, but it probably helps: ABC Family confirms that it’s in the early stages of developing the series What Would Jane Do
Anyone else oddly optimistic about What Would Jane Do?
