At last revealing the laughter behind the Plinko pain, Showtime is developing a half-hour sitcom loosely based on the Price Is Right experience of "Barker's Beauty" Kathleen Bradley. Nora Ephron's sister Delia--who unfortunatley co-wrote the scripts for Nora's You've Got Mail, Bewitched, and Michael--is writing and executive producing the series, which is titled 36-24-36, named after the ideal measurements of a time before we got more cartoonish with it. Bradley--the first full-time black model on The Price is Right--is consulting on the series, said to be "about the first black TV model to be featured on a major game show in 1990." Three other models will also reportedly be the leads in the show, which it's said will see "celebrity and glamour collide with sexual harassment, racism, misogyny, homophobia, bulimia and job insecurity." Sounds hilarious already!
