A Sitcom Based On John Legend And Chrissy Teigen Is Coming To ABC

A show based on John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s relationship is coming to a major network. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris has confirmed with Buzzfeed that she is working on a pilot for ABC based on the married couple.

“It’s inspired by them—they’re both super creative and super effusive and I’m just fans of them and everything they stand for,” Barris said. “I’m really excited about it.”

The working title for the show is Ordinary People, the same as his Grammy-winning 2004 hit. Barris said she feels that “that song serves a thematic background for the show.”

Ordinary People will follow an interracial couple and will show  “those two worlds colliding and coming together — their issues and their obstacles that [happen inside] their personal relationship.”
