ABC Buys Sitcom About Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger Set in the 1980s

New, 1 comment

ABC bought the rights to a new untitled comedy project that chronicles the "early days" of restaurateurs and Top Chef Masters competitors Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, reports THR. It will be set in the 1980s, and former Disney chief Michael Eisner is executive producing. Business partners for over 25 years, Milliken and Feniger run the Border Grill restaurants in Santa Monica, Downtown Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. Also: Milliken is married to Feniger's ex-husband, which can lead to saucy television. (Scroll on this Top Chef Masters recap for a vintage 1980s photo of Milliken.)
