News   Todd Graff to Develop Teen Musical Dramedy for CW
 
Todd Graff, a Tony Award nominee for acting in the musical Baby who is best known for writing and directing the films "Camp" and "Bandslam," is working to develop a musical dramedy for CW, according to deadline.com.

The series, currently entitled "Acting Out," will follow the counselors and staff of a down-on-its-luck summer camp. In addition to the scenario's clear echoes of Fox's hit musical series "Glee," the camp's new owner, a young but curmudgeonly man, is described as being reminiscent of Billy Bob Thornton's character in the film "Bad Santa."

Graff, who is also attached to an updated film remake of the Broadway musical Damn Yankees, is developing the series with "Bandslam" producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.  Both would executive produce, and Graff may direct episodes.  

A projected airdate has not been set.
