The project was set up in October at MGM, which won a bidding war for Chiara Atik’s script about a fairy godmother hired by a teenage client to find her true love with a prince. Complications ensue when the prince starts falling for the fairy godmother instead.
Brownstein, Fred Armisen, and Jonathan Krisel created the satirical series “Portlandia,” which debuted on IFC in 2011. The show stars Brownstein and Armisen, and won a Peabody Award and an Emmy and completed its seventh season in March.
