Disney+ streaming service plans sitcom set in Wisconsin

APPLETON (WKOW) - Disney's streaming service, Disney+, is developing a comedy set in Northeast Wisconsin.

Our Green Bay affiliate, WBAY, reports the series titled "The Biggest Star in Appleton" will feature Kristen Chenoweth. Chenoweth is an Emmy and Tony-award winning star.

Deadline reports Chenoweth will play a Wisconsin mom, wife and waitress who discovers small-town stardom in the community theater. She feels threatened when a struggling New York chorus girl moves to town.

WBAY said there's no timeline for the series premiere and there's also no guarantee the series will air on Disney's streaming service.

Disney reportedly canceled some other shows in development before launching.
