ABC television has given the green light to a comedy pilot to be executive produced by Elton John. The set, dubbed "Him and Us," revolves around an over-the-hill rock star, his manager and the rest of his colorful entourage. In hand to write the script is Cindy Chupack, a former executive producer of HBO's "Sex and the City."
Not only the singer will use his own experience, but also some of his peers' lives, such as that of Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger or Paul McCartney. Also included into the team behind is Michael Edelstein, executive producer of "Desperate Housewives" and John's long-time partner, David Furnish, a film producer.
