Currently in the early stages of development, according to Broadcast magazine, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is working alongside Motherland writers Sharon Horgan and Holly Walsh. Horgan, Walsh and Clelia Mountford will executive produce the US version.

Grace and Frankie writer Julieanne Smolinski is attached to the US script, Smolinski previously worked on the US version of UK show Sirens.
