Supermodel, nipple-freeing warrior, and Dorito-licking hero Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend are getting the sitcom treatment. According to BuzzFeed, their love story and marriage are the source material for an upcoming sitcom and I could not be happier about anything.
Kenya Barris, creator of the ABC show Black-ish, told BuzzFeed the first project in his brand new three-year overall deal with the network will be a sitcom inspired by Chrissy and John.
'It's inspired by them — they're both super creative and super effusive and I'm just fans of them and everything they stand for,' Barris said. 'I'm really excited about it.'
Chrissy and John are partnering with Barris to produce the project, which is tentatively called Ordinary People. (How fitting.) Barris said the show will be about an interracial couple, which details 'their issues and their obstacles that [happen inside] their personal relationship.'
According to BuzzFeed, the show could start filming as early as this February, providing the pilot gets picked up by the network.
If I may be so bold as to make one teeny tiny suggestion to the producers of this new project: Hire Chrissy's real-life mom, Vilailuck Teigen, to be on this show. Seriously. You will not be sorry you did this.
