A semiautobiographical comedy based on the real-life friendship of writers and longtime roommates Sascha Rothchild and Randi Barnes is being developed for NBC. The show, according to Deadline.com, will be cheekily titled My Best Friend Is a Lesbo. The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's Fake Empire studio, is about two female best friends -- one gay, one straight -- who become roommates and help each other navigate life, love, and dating in Los Angeles. Rothchild and Barnes will coauthor the script. This is a rare pairing of the two, who are not a writing team.

According to Deadline.com, Rothchild recently sold her feature film Who Invited Her? to DreamWorks (Reese Witherspoon will star in it), and she is writing a screenplay based on her book How to be Divorced By 30. Barnes cowrote the upcoming animated feature Dorothy of Oz (which stars Lea Michele). Fake Empire is responsible for two current TV hits, Chuck and Gossip Girl.
