Ellen Page writing a comedy show for HBO
Ellen Page, who is only 22 and already has an Oscar nomination for Best Actress and is one of the more in-demand actresses of the moment, has just agreed to her first big writing deal. Page will write and executive produce a new TV show for HBO called "Stitch N' Bitch."
Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann will also be writing and executive producing "Stitch N' Bitch." Shawkat's name might be unfamiliar at first, but many of you probably recognize her face and at least one of her previous roles, Maeby from "Arrested Development." So yes, she is awesome. Tillmann has done a little acting, but is primarily a musician known as Har Mar Superstar. Tillman's music and live performances, which are heavy on the male nudity (his own), is what most of your grandmas would probably describe as "weird" or "out there."
"Stitch N' Bitch" will "[follow] two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists -- of any kind."
Page, Shawkat, and Tillmann have not decided yet if they will be acting in "Stitch N' Bitch," but it would be pretty cool to see Page and Shawkat playing those two hipsters.
I'm pretty excited to see how Page, Shawkat, and Tillmann will do as first time writers with "Stitch N' Bitch." How do you feel about this project?
