Kyra Sedgwick, HBO Developing Comedy About a Former Nun

29 October 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Putting a spin on the “newly divorced woman” storyline, HBO has inked a script development deal with exec producers Kyra Sedgwick and Kari Lizer for a comedy about a former nun trying to find herself after walking out on her church and, well, her marriage.

Lizer, who created “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and is therefore no stranger to the subject of women starting over, will write the script. Sedgwick is tapped to star in the still-untitled half-hour, single-camera laffer from Lizer’s Kari’s Logo Here in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Sedgwick is repped by CAA, Impression Entertainment and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams. Lizer, who also has a put pilot commitment at NBC for her comedy “Wing Mom,” is repped by Vision Art Management.
