The Juno scribe has sold a pilot script for Alex + Amy to the network, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The show's two leads are described as a "22-year-old Millennial guy" and a "32-year-old Gen X woman" who have fallen in love and moved in together.
Executive producers Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank previously worked with Cody on her Showtime series United States of Tara, while fellow exec Mason Novick has teamed with the writer/director on many of her film projects, including 2007's Juno, 2009's Jennifer's Body and 2011's Young Adult.
Cody has also penned the script for forthcoming horror movie remake The Evil Dead and has scripted a romantic comedy-drama, with Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Holly Hunter and Octavia Spencer all attached to star.
Other comedy pilots currently in the works at ABC include a remake of UK series Rev and Mixology, from the writers of The Hangover.
