According to Variety, Banks has shepherded the series Something to Celebrate to a development deal at CBS. Vera Santamaria, who has written for programs like Bojack Horseman and Degrassi: The Next Generation, is the brains behind the family comedy with Banks joining her in an executive producer capacity. Here’s how Variety presents the premise of Something to Celebrate:
The single-camera comedy follows four adult siblings work in their family’s popular bakery and enjoy the fun of being in a second-generation American family that loves a celebration.
After all, who doesn’t love a celebration? *checks the mood of the country at the moment* Okay, traditionally EVERYBODY loves a celebration. We’re certainly intrigued by the project and works like the Pitch Perfect films serve as a quality calling card for the industry acumen of Elizabeth Banks. This particular deal holds the distinction of being the first network TV pact knocked out by the team of Banks and her husband Max Handelman.
This seems like as good a time as any to remind the planet that Banks is playing Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. We think she’s going to do an excellent job and hopefully get to keep her prop staff.
