As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the laffer 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 exec 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.
