Good News: ABC Developing “Comedy” About Illegal Aliens

As if we don’t get enough social justice warrioring from the entertainment industry, now they’re going to give it a shot with illegal aliens

(Deadline) With the topic of immigration firmly in the headlines, most recently over President Donald Trump’s decision yesterday to end the DACA program, it has become a very popular subject for TV series projects this season.

Written by David Feeney (New Girl, 2 Broke Girls) and to be directed by Christine Gernon (Speechless, New Girl), the comedy revolves around a hard-bitten husband and empathetic wife who butt heads over the chaos created when they provide sanctuary for their undocumented nanny and her family — and come to learn, if their marriage survives, that the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities. Feeney and Gernon executive produce for 20th Century Fox TV.

Well, yes, we are rather similar. All families and individuals have problems. The big difference here is that the illegal aliens knowingly chose to enter the US in contradiction to our laws and further violate those laws by staying.

The David Feeney comedy joins several other recently set-up projects that tackle the subject of immigrants, including the undocumented.

Gina Rodriguez is producing two such projects at the CW and CBS. They are Illegal, a dramedy about the family of a teenager who was brought to the U.S. as an undocumented immigrant when he was a child, and Have Mercy, which centers on a Latina doctor who’s unable to practice when she immigrates to Miami.

CBS also has another show in the works,  and Fox reportedly has two. Essentially trying to mainstream law breakers.

And then they wonder why so many are cutting the cord. There are exactly two network shows I watch: Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef. The last regular show was Under The Dome, and gave up on that turd after suffering through the last half of the 1st season. Boy, that was horrible.

    You do realize it’s television, right? Did you whine about The A Team, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Blue Bloods, Sons of Anarchy, or any of the other dozens of shows that glorify lawbreaking?
