Pomerantz, who serves as a writer and producer on the Telepictures' syndicated "Ellen," will write and executive produce. DeGeneres, through her A Very Good Production shingle, also will serve as an executive producer on the Warner Bros. Television comedy.The effort centers on a successful woman who notices that she's listed as a "single woman" on the paperwork for the house she's about to close on and becomes convinced that she just doomed herself to die alone. As a result, she turns to her friends, family and a therapist to convince her she didn't make a huge mistake.
The Pomerantz project marks the latest sale this development season for DeGeneres' banner. The company also sold a comedy based on the web series "Couple Time" to Fox.DeGeneres this week kicked off the 10th season of her syndicated talk show to its best ratings since 2003.
