Omnipresent actress Judy Greer is adapting her Yahoo! series Reluctantly Healthy for The CW.
A half-hour version of her online show, which explores healthy eating and exercise in 2.5 to 5-minute segments, will debut Oct. 4 as part of the network’s new educational Saturday morning lineup, dubbed “One Magnificent Morning.” The shows will be a combination of new material and repurposed content from the online show.
Greer is a familiar face to TV viewers from recurring roles on shows such as Two and a Half Men, Arrested Development and Californication. She currently stars opposite Nat Faxon in the sitcom Married, which debuted on FX last month. She has also been seen in such films as 13 Going on 30 and The Descendants (co-written by Faxon).
Produced by Electus, Principato-Young Entertainment and Kids at Play Media, Reluctantly Healthy debuted on Yahoo in 2011. The CW version is being produced by Electus and Principato-Young, in association with Litton Entertainment, which is the producer and distributor of the “One Magnificent Morning” package. It follows in the footsteps of other web-to-TV adaptations such as the AOL series #CandidlyNicole, starring Nicole Richie, which was turned into a VH1 series that kicked off an 8-episode run last month.
“One Magnificent Morning” replaces Saban Brand’s “Vortexx” Saturday morning block on The CW.
