It hails from the 39-year-old Mexican American actress’ UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and Universal Television, where the company is under a first-look deal.

The project is based on Tré Miller-Rodriguez’s memoir Splitting the Difference, which chronicles her life in New York as a 34-year-old widow who reunites with the daughter she gave up for adoption at 18.

The ABC show, written by Coiro, centers on a buttoned-down 17-year-old who reunites with her recently widowed 36-year-old biological mom and they become the heart of a patchwork family bound by more than blood.

Coiro and UnbeliEVAble’s Longoria and Ben Spector will executive produce.

This is the fifth sale for UnbeliEVAble this development season.
