Word on the street is that CBS has picked up the pilot for a TV show (for 2011-2012 season) about celebrity personal assistants called, The Assistants.

Years ago I was asked to be a consultant (along with some fellow assistants) for a similar show on a different network. Talks stalled and Donald Trump out “trumped” as all with the highly successful “Celebrity Apprentice” show. Can CBS strike gold? Remains to be seen. If this does go through, I hope assistants are portrayed in an accurate light and not as jerks. (I know, I know, dream on Shelley!)
