ABC has bought a new divorce drama from Reese Witherspoon. The Hollywood Reporter shared that the network has ordered the series titled Please Don’t Go from her production company.
The drama was created by Meaghan Oppenheimer, who is also behind AMC series Fear the Walking Dead. Oppenheimer and Witherspoon will executive produce the series which is coming from Witherspoon’s Bruna Papandrea.
The Hollywood Reporter shared the details about the plot:
“The project follows the personal and professional life of a ruthless divorce attorney in Dallas. Raised in the trailer parks of Texas, she has left behind a life of struggle amid squalor, working her way into a corner office and mansion in Dallas’ most prestigious neighborhood. But beneath her facade of togetherness, she’s plagued by self-destructive tendencies and long-hidden family secrets that begin to unravel her life.”
There is no word yet if Witherspoon will star in the series herself. She does know a bit about divorce in her own life. She was once married to Ryan Phillippe. He returned to television last year in ABC’s Secret and Lies.
