DETROIT (AP) — Cable network TNT has announced it's developing a show created by Detroit newspaper columnist, author and radio host Mitch Albom.

The network announced plans for the untitled program this week as part of a slate of projects during its upfront presentation in New York. That's when networks present schedules to prospective advertisers.

TNT describes the show as set in a Motor City radio station and "following a station manager who, against his wishes, returns home to try and breathe life into his struggling city."

Albom says it's "a Detroit story," an hourlong comedy-drama that draws on his experiences working in radio.

He says he's writing the pilot and expects it to debut "sometime next year."

Albom is best known for "Tuesdays with Morrie," a memoir that sold millions.
