Delivery - Perinatology Unit Family Medical Drama from Reese Witherspoon in Development at NBC

This is probably the most heartwarming story you will hear this broadcast selling season. NBC has put in development Delivery, a family drama set in a high-risk perinatology unit from writers Kristin Newman (The Muppets) and Rob Wright (Lethal Weapon). The project hails from ABC Studios and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine banner.

Delivery is a deeply personal project for Newman and Wright who are married and new parents. The two are not writing partners but teamed together for the first time to write the script on spec during the three months they spent living in a hospital labor and delivery ward, with Newman initially on bedrest, following the birth of their daughter ten weeks early.

Delivery was set up at ABC Studios where Newman is under an overall deal. The script got the attention of ABC Studios-based Hello Sunshine, founded by Reese Witherspoon with the goal of creating content that puts women at the center of the story.

Newman and Wright executive produce the drama, about a group of doctors with deep familial ties who must navigate their personal and professional lives in a high volume perinatology unit, with Hello Sunshine’s Witherspoon and Lauren Levy Neustader.
