DeGeneres’ wife De Rossi will star as “a brilliant and successful woman who begrudgingly goes to work for her less-brainy but more popular sister — a former beauty queen, weather girl…and now big-city Mayor.”

Donald Todd (“Ugly Betty,” “Hart of Dixie,” “Samantha Who?”) will write as well as executive-produce.

A Very Good Production, which is behind DeGeneres’ daytime talk show, will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.
