@GENERALSTORIES (Quibi, New!) - Adam Goldberg has set up a potential series at the streaming service which "follows millennial couple Charlie and Lake who decide to uproot their young family and hectic life in Los Angeles to move in with Lake's parents and open a general store in a small East Coast town after a downsizing trend they notice on Instagram. Before they know it, they become Instagram stars themselves and what began as a hobby and sales tool to support the store, quickly become an obsession and exposes problems the family didn't know (or weren't prepared to admit) they had." The project, loosely based on his own experiences with social media, will be helmed by Goldberg with writer Eric Siegel and Stampede Ventures' Greg Silverman and Paul Shapiro also executive producing.

Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show," said ABC and producer BBC Studios in a joint statement.
