The show, written by Abby Gewanter (Pushing Daisies), follows the story of a woman who moves in with her daughter after discovering the daughter has criticized her in a blog post called "Dear Mom, Here's Why I Hate You."

The producers haven't chosen who is going to play opposite the Oscar-winning actress. Scott Ellis (The Good Wife, 30 Rock, Modern Family) will direct and co-produce the project with FremantleMedia.
