As reported in March, Majandra Delfino has landed the third lead on ABC’s comedy pilot “Pulling” alongside Lindsay Sloane and Mary Elizabeth Ellis.
Since “Pulling” is based on a British format the Blogger Monkey posted an entry guardian.co.uk about the choice of ABC to produce a pilot, saying that ABC has made two versions of the show for its pilot “Pulling” since the show about three single women is full of sex, drinking and swearing. One version with all the naughty stuff and one a bit cleaner.

(from ABC’s web site, March 2009) Boyfriends may come and go, but girlfriends are forever. When three almost-thirty-something best friends find themselves single again, they move in together and live it up as only three Philly girls can. Donna, Louise and Karen have lived in Philly their whole lives and have been friends for almost as long. No matter what’s happened in their lives, they’ve always been there for each other. Now facing their thirties, they’re beginning to wonder just what it is exactly that they have to show for it. Ballsy Karen just gave up her apartment, but can’t find a new one since landlords only want couples. Beautiful, but neurotic Donna is suffering a serious mid-relationship crisis regarding her fianc Karl. And sweet, but slightly ditzy Louise is finally in a relationship… unfortunately, it’s sex-free because her boyfriend is a reformed flasher. As Karen enlists her friends into her crazy schemes to secure her dream apartment, Donna finally decides that she has to let Karl go. Louise’s boyfriend has the balls to dump her when she catches him flashing Karen’s would-be landlady. Now the girls really need an apartment. These three girlfriends may not have anywhere to sleep just yet, but at least they know they’ve always got each other. Now if they could only find love. Pulling is the blue-collar answer to Sex and the City. Stacy Taub (Notes from the Underbelly) adapts from Sharon Horgan and Dennis Kelly’s hit British comedy of the same name. Every woman will identify with one of these three friends as they discover just how hilariously hard it really is to get a life.
