Edie Falco comedy heading to Showtime

(FROM VARIETY) - Showtime is fast-tracking a new single-camera, half-hour comedy starring Sopranos star Edie Falco. The story is about a tough New York City nurse (Falco) balancing her job at an urban hospital and difficult personal life. The pay network, which is developing the series with Lionsgate Television, says the show will focus on the life of Falco’s character as well as provide ”a darkly comedic view of a health care system gone awry.” Shooting is scheduled to start later this year. Falco recently completed an arc as Alec Baldwin’s love interest on 30 Rock. (Variety)
