Hit tells the story of a young pop star, struggling to write her debut album, who gets stuck in a songwriting boot camp organized by the anxious execs at her record label.

“I am so excited to be partnering with ABC Studios,” said McKenna. “Dana (Walden), Jonnie (Davis) and the whole development team have so much passion for creating unique, quality television. I’m thrilled for the chance to continue working on projects I love. I hope Lean Machine will be a home for material that is character-driven, inclusive, human and which puts writers and writing at the center of the creative process.”
