You aren’t alone in noticing Midler’s campy turn on Murphy Brown. ABC tried to lure her into a sitcom deal. Â Nothing came of it for this season; however, Midler may make some kind of deal with Carsey-Werner known for developing comedies around strong women.
The ever employable Midler also has begun work on Isn’t She Great playing the Valley Of The Dolls author, Jackie Susann. Â Her costar: Nathan Lane.
