CBS and Jessica Alba Turn Another Blog Into a Sitcom

The very funny Canadian blogger/tweeter/ex-model Kelly Oxford has become a bit of a showbiz darling over the last year or so, attracting retweets and shout-outs from the likes of Diablo Cody, Roger Ebert, Dan Harmon, John Mayer, and Jessica Alba. Earlier this year, word leaked out that another Hollywood fan — former Will & Gracewriter Jhoni Marchinko — had teamed with Oxford to develop a potential sitcom based on the Canadian writer’s life as a stay-at-home mom. Looks like things are going well: Vulture has learned that CBS has picked up the project, with both Alba and Marchinko on board as producers.

Currently dubbed The Mother of All Something, the half-hour sitcom (produced by CBS Studios) is being written by Oxford and will borrow heavily from her own life as a mother of three (and, yes, her Twitter feed). Alba’s involvement as executive producer could be a hint that perhaps she’s thinking of actually starring in the show should it go all the way to series. As of now, however, CBS is simply calling the actress a non-writing producer on the potential series. And while it was quite common back in the eighties and nineties for stand-up comics to play versions of themselves on TV, Oxford has dismissed the notion of her appearing on-camera. “I’ve had a lot of offers to act in the last few months,” she told semi-jealous scribe Jill Soloway in an interview last spring. “But I’d rather be known as a good middle-class mom than a wealthy, terrible actress.” CBS will likely decide whether to film a pilot for Mother by March.
