Diablo Cody and Oprah Winfrey have set a comedy project at HBO based on Dr. Julie Holland’s upcoming book “Moody Bitches,” Variety has confirmed.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the comedy will lift from the psychiatrist’s source material and expose “the truth about the drugs you’re taking, the sex you’re not having, the sleep you’re missing and what’s really making you crazy,” as the book’s extended title says. (Holland’s book has yet to receive a release date.)
Cody will write the pilot script and executive produce alongside Winfrey. Harpo Films will produce the comedy.
Cody, who rose to fame after penning indie feature “Juno,” recently sold drama project “Prodigy” to Fox.
