A few months ago, one heard for the first time about a new project for Ellen DeGeneres, a sitcom The Smart One in whom would play her wife, Portia de Rossi. Good news, Entertainment Weekly has just announced that a pilot was ordered by ABC.

The pilot will be written by Donald Todd (Samantha Who).

The Smart One will tell the story of two sisters constantly in conflict, one, played by Portia de Rossi, will be a "brilliant and successful woman who begrudgingly goes to work for her less-brainy but more popular sister — a former beauty queen, weather girl and now big-city Mayor."
