Reese Witherspoon Producing Comedy ‘Americanized’ About Undocumented Iranian Family From Sara Saedi At ABC

ABC has put in development Americanized, a half-hour comedy inspired by Sara Saedi’s memoir Americanized: Rebel Without A Green Card, from Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and ABC Studios, where Hello Sunshine has a broadcast overall deal.

Written by Saedi (iZombie), Americanized tells the story of a loving and off-beat Iranian family who’s been living with a huge secret: they’re undocumented immigrants. Told through an irreverent, heartfelt and a-political lens, the series will give viewers a window into the life of a Middle-Eastern household while exploring the universal truths that bond every type of “American” family.

In the book, Saedi shares her story of growing up in San Jose, California in a loving Iranian family and her shock when she discovers she and the rest of her family are undocumented.

Saidi executive produces with Hello Sunshine’s Witherspoon and Lauren Levy Neustadter. ABC Studios is the studio.

The deal comes nine years after ABC took a stab at an Iranian family comedy with Funny In Farsi, based on Firoozeh Dumas’s “Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America.” The project went to a pilot directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, marking the first pilot order for producer Aaron Kaplan, but did not make the cut to series.

In the past few years, ABC has been looking to expand its family comedy brand to better represent different sections of American society. The network successfully launched an African-American family comedy with Black-ish, an Asian American family comedy with Fresh Off the Boat and also tried to find another hit Latinx family comedy with Cristela. In addition to Americanized, ABC also is developing multi-generational Latinx family comedy Food and Familia from Peter Murrieta and Overbrook Entertainment starring Danny Trejo whose life inspired it.

In addition to the CW’s iZombie, Saedi previously wrote for Fox’s The Goodwin Games. She is now on the upcoming ABC/ABC Studios drama Grand Hotel. Saedi is repped by Gersh and Nacelle Company.

Hello Sunshine’s series portfolio includes a limited series at Hulu from Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller Little Fires Everywhere; a comedy series for Apple created by Colleen McGuinness and inspired by Curtis Sittenfeld’s short-story collection You Think It, I’ll Say It; Apple series Are You Sleeping, executive produced by and starring Octavia Spencer; a limited series adaptation of the novel Daisy Jones & The Six for Amazon; and an Untitled Morning Show series at Apple produced by and starring Jennifer Aniston and Witherspoon. The company is repped by CAA and Gretchen Rush.

Reese Witherspoon’s life mirrors ‘Sweet Home Alabama’

Reese Witherspoon’s life imitated her 2002 movie “Sweet Home Alabama.”

“When I read the script I was like, ‘Do these people know my life story?’” Witherspoon said at The Town Hall in New York on Monday night while promoting her new book, “Whiskey in a Teacup,” with Woodford Reserve.

“Because no matter how much you love where you’re from, when you get a little bit older you get nostalgic for it. When I was 18, I was like, ‘I am out of here! I am never coming back!’”

“Sweet Home Alabama” starred Witherspoon as a New York fashion designer who returned home to Alabama to get her estranged husband (Josh Lucas) to sign divorce papers so she could marry the mayor’s son, played by Patrick Dempsey.

“When I was going through ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ I was like, ‘This is exactly how so many young people feel. You want to leave home and then you realize that there’s so many important things about the closeness of family or people who knew you before.’ And I feel really like that movie really encapsulated those ideas. And it was a lot of fun. It was so much fun. I had a great time doing it.”

Witherspoon, 42, added that she never thought she would move back to Nashville after leaving to pursue her acting dreams, but when she started having kids she had a change of heart. She later bought and lived on a working farm.

“I went real ‘Little House on the Prairie’ there for a moment because I was so nostalgic for home,” she said with a laugh.

HBO have teased their upcoming shows, including a very quick look at Big Little Lies season 2! It seems to be mainly shots from Season 1, but there is a little new bit:

We’re on to the ‘love triangle’ period of Reese’s career in our mission to complete the Movies section of our Gallery. The How Do You Know? section has been updated with additional stills, posters, and promotional screencaptures. This movie had a fantastic cast, but it somehow fell short with a well-intentioned but awkward script and delivery. It was nice seeing Reese playing a somewhat different character and I always love seeing her alongside Paul Rudd! Enjoy the new additions:

Earlier in the week, Reese attended the launch of her new AT&T/Hello Sunshine channel show Shine On With Reese. She looked chic and pretty in a black and white lace Monique Lhuillier dress, with Jennifer Meyer jewellry. Reese talked about her motivation for the series being to support and encourage other women, as well as believing that changing the storytellers will change the stories we see out there. Reese mentioned that she’s been having meetings about the upcoming Legally Blonde 3, but she wouldn’t reveal any storyline secrets! She also took a toy ice cream on the red carpet with her, to reenact paparazzi photos taken of her throwing an ice cream at Meryl Streep on the set of Big Little Lies!

Lots of photos, videos, and articles are within this post for you:

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
