CW's Reeling in 'Light Years'
By Josef Adalian

The CW is moving forward with “Light Years,” an hourlong dramedy being
described as “Juno” meets “Gilmore Girls.”

Liz Tigelaar (“What About Brian,” “Brothers & Sisters”) will write the
pilot, while Gary Fleder (“Life on Mars”) will direct. Both will
executive produce via ABC Studios.

“Light Years” revolves around a teenage girl who has spent most of her
life in foster homes. She searches for—and finds—her birth parents,
only to discover they haven’t spoken to each other since she was born.
Mom is a commitment-phobic radio host, while dad is a slacker bar
owner. They form an unlikely family unit.

The CW has given the project a pilot presentation commitment.

You sound like some half baked cable programmer.  Look everyone, the main 
characters are killers and hookers in this 'family drama', so lets start 
throwing Emmy awards at it.
