The 30-year partnership between Border Grill chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger is heading to the small screen. Michael Eisner, who recently wrote about the duo's teamwork, successfully pitched a comedy pilot to ABC called Working Together that will soon go into production.

Set in the eighties and based on the Too Hot Tamales' story, the L.A. Times reports that the show will follow two female chefs struggling to establish their careers in a male-dominated industry, and could even touch upon Feniger's coming out and Milliken's marriage to Feniger's former husband. With a pilot being written by Desperate Housewives' Jeff Greenstein, here's hoping to see the famous collaboration begin on that fateful day when Feniger's knife first met Milliken's knuckle.
