Home Movies Jane Fonda Update: ABC Sitcom in the Works But She’s Still with...

Lots of headlines this morning about Jane Fonda signing to do a sitcom pilot for ABC. Everyone should relax a little bit. There’s no script yet for “Now What?” and no showrunner. There’s also no cast. It’s just a pilot and a lot of what’s involved is not firm yet, I am told. However: Fonda, a likely Golden Globe nominee for “The Newsroom,” will return to the HBO series in its second season. Aaron Sorkin told me he’d like to have Fonda in every episode. The word is she does appear in the first episode of Season 2. How “Now What?”will impact her participation in “The Newsroom” is unknown still since “Now What?” doesn’t really exist yet. Meantime, Fonda–who will be 75 in December and looks 45–is hot right now. She’s in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” next year. And her French film, called “All Together,” was just released in theaters in New York by Tribeca Films. It’s also available on Amazon Instant Video and on iTunes for a limited VOD run. Stay tuned…
