Ellen DeGeneres-Portia De Rossi Dueling Sisters Comedy Gets Pilot Ordered!!

Ellen Portia Pilot Ordered

Um, first off:

How awesome does an Ellen Degeneres/Portia De Rossi comedy pilot about dueling sisters sound??

Second off:

You're right! It sounds awesome! And it just got a pilot ordered by ABC — so chances are, we'll get to see it!

It's called The Smart One, and will star Rossi.

Here's what it's about:

Arrested Development and Ally McBeal alumna de Rossi plays one of them, a brilliant and successful woman who has to go to work for her less brainy but more popular sister — a former beauty queen, weather girl … and now big city Mayor.

That sounds pretty great, and everything Portia's been in recently has been incredible, including the very underrated Better Off Ted (we wish it was still on!).

So, we hope they knock it out of the park and we get to see at least a full season!
