The network originally began developing Acting Out in December but the show did not get picked up.
The CW has now decided to convert it into a half-hour workplace comedy with musical performances, Deadline reports.
Acting Out focuses on a group of employees at a struggling summer camp whose new grumpy owner clashes with the general manager, a former actress.
Todd Graff, who previously worked on the movies Bandslam and Camp, wrote the show's original script and is expected to make the changes himself.
He will also executive produce the project with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, who previously worked on Bandslam with Graff and produced the movies Maid In Manhattan, Mona Lisa Smile and Perfect Stranger.
