Standing up for the right to kill as many babies as you want won’t give you the key to the Texas governor’s mansion, but it will give you the key to America’s hearts.
Wendy Davis made national headlines in 2013 for filibustering anti-abortion legislation in the Texas Senate. Now the former Democratic state senator is poised for more national attention as the inspiration for a dramedy series in development at NBC.
Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.
That sounds really great.
This will be a surefire ratings hit. Just because the only people who like Wendy Davis are abortion enthusiasts, that doesn’t mean the rest of America won’t be tuning in!
Now it just needs a title. How about one of these?
