John Legend and Chrissy Teigen marriage has inspired an upcoming sitcom. Get the deets inside...
Earlier this week, we revealed to you that Black-ish creator Kenya Barris had signed a three-year production deal with ABC and now we know about one of his first projects. Kenya and his team have plans to turn the marriage of Oscar-winner John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen into a sitcom.
It will be a comedic take loosely based on the marriage between the pair. Kenya told Buzzfeed,
"It’s inspired by them — they’re both super creative and super effusive and I’m just fans of them and everything they stand for. They will both will producers on the project, which is tentatively titled, Ordinary People, after John's 2004 Grammy-winning track of the same name. 'I feel that song serves as a thematic background for the show."
He added, 'It will be about an interracial couple. We don’t know what’s going to be what. But it will be a part of the show in terms of showing those two world’s colliding and coming together — their issues and their obstacles that [happen inside] their personal relationship.'
If the show is greenlit, it will begin filming in February. Chrissy damn sure hit the come-up jackpot marrying John. She's currently starring in a Samsung commercial with her pup, she'll be starring on the new ABC daytime talk show "The Fab Life" this fall with Tyra Banks and others. she's still got her co-hosting gig on " Lip Sync Battle," she's got a cookbook on the way, she's constantly offered gigs as Award show host, and the list keeps going.
Chrissy and John headed to LA for the weekend where they partied with a few celeb couple friends. Last night, John and Gabrielle Union hit the dance floor to "After Party" by Koffee Brown. Check out their moves above...
