Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Are Getting Their Own TV Show...Kind Of
August 25, 2015
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend‘s relationship is completely enviable and they are basically the cutest couple on social media…and in life. Their love life is so unique and entertaining that it’s become the inspiration for a new television sitcom! Best news ever?!
According to BuzzFeed, Kenya Barris, creator of the ABC television show Black-ish is working on a new sitcom that is loosely based on Chrissy and John’s marriage. Barris has signed a three-year deal with ABC Studios to develop new projects and this is first on his list.
“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. I’m really excited about it,” Barris told BuzzFeed. What’s more, Chrissy and John will be working as producing partners for the show.
As of now, the show is called Ordinary People, named after John’s Grammy-winning track from 2004. Barris said, “I feel that song serves a thematic background for the show.” The show will be about an interracial couple and will focus on “those two world’s colliding and coming together — their issues and their obstacles that [happen inside] their personal relationship.”
BuzzFeed reports filming will begin in February if the show gets greenlit.
My only concern: how will actors be able to portray Chrissy and John’s relationship in the same manner? Their love seems hard to replicate!
