Arquette Gets Real With ABC Family


ABC Family has agreed to develop a not-yet-titled half-hour scripted comedy based on Rosanna Arquette's life.

The series will be written by industry veteran Holly Goldberg Sloan. The single-camera show will be shot documentary-style and focus on various aspects of Arquette's storied life.

Arquette's real-life best friend, Kimberly Beck Clark, will also be featured.

"Rosanna Arquette is such a great, unique talent with a very interesting life," ABC Family head of programming Linda Mancuso said in a release.

"We know this show can be water-cooler television, and we believe we have all of the elements required for a breakout hit," she added.

Viewers will see Arquette as a muse to rock stars and as the unconventional mother of a teen-age daughter. The antics of Arquette and Clark will add another comedic element.

Arquette recently starred in independent film Iowa. She has a recurring guest role on the award-winning sitcom Will & Grace, has guest-starred on The Practice
and directed the critically acclaimed film Searching for Debra Winger.
