Fox is developing a new sitcom inspired by the Girls Auto Clinic in Upper Darby and its team of female mechanics, writes Nick Vadala for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The new show is called Patty’s Auto after Girls Auto Clinic founder Patrice Banks. Banks opened the shop in January last year. She is both the consulting and the executive producer of the show.
Patty’s Auto will be written by The Big C creator Darlene Hunt. It centers on a fictionalized version of the shop at 7426 West Chester Pike and follows the main character as she manages the business and its mostly female staff.
The Hunger Games actress and University of Pennsylvania graduate Elizabeth Banks is also among the show’s producers.
