A TV Show For Jane Fonda

by

Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda is having a great year, with parts in The Newsroom and the upcoming The Butler.

And now, I hear, she’s doing a pilot for ABC!

It’s a mother/daughter premise, and though she could easily play the daughter, I assume Jane will probably be the mother.

I’m glad Jane’s landed something she likes because I hear she turned down another TV project–playing the “lovable bigot” on The New Normal.

Any world where Jane Fonda is in demand like this is the new fabulous.
