Former ‘That 70’s Show’ actress and new mother, Mila Kunis, has inked a first-look deal with ABC Studios with her newly launched production company, Orchard Farm Productions.

Kunis launched the company with three other industry women, Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov. The foursome is planning to develop and produce TV projects for both broadcast and cable, according to Deadline.

This isn’t Kunis’ first foray into television production. Two years ago, she told through a series called ‘Meridian Hills’ that explored the women’s liberation movement in the ‘70’s. Unfortunately, the project never got off the ground.

Kunis continues to work in other facets of television as well, voicing Meg griffin on the wildly popular animated series ‘Family Guy’.
