In what could be one of the dumbest ideas of all time, TVLand has ordered a pilot for an updated Laverne and Shirley series.
The networkâ€™s president, Larry Jones, said he is developing a loosely scripted show featuring the real Laverne & Shirley, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams. As themselves.
He said a pilot, with the duo living together at Pennyâ€™s house, is scheduled to shoot next month. It would pair the actresses in a series for the first time since collaborating on the long-running sitcom, â€œLaverne & Shirley.â€
