The CW is developing a 1970s period drama with Olivia Munn, who will star and executive produce. The untitled series tells the story of a female reporter who tries to break the glass ceiling in TV sports reporting.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Set in 1974, the drama revolves around a young journalist who gets hired by an ambitious New York news programming chief as a publicity stunt to be one of the first female on-air sports reporters. She then has to learn to navigate gender politics in front of and behind the camera at a time when women were literally not even allowed in the press box.
Per TV Insider:
The project… comes from writer Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife). […]
Munn will executive produce with Humphrey via CBS TV Studios. Stacia Peters is also developing the project with Munn.
