Toni Collette in ‘The United States of Tara.’

Showtime Networks has ordered 12 half-hour episodes of the comedy series “The United States of Tara.”
The program stars Toni Collette as a wife and mother with disassociative identity disorder (aka multiple personality disorder). John Corbett (“Sex and the City”) plays her husband, who must cope with her many identities of different age, temperament and gender.
Academy Award-winner Diablo Cody (“Juno”) wrote the pilot and will serve as a writer and executive producer along with Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, DreamWorks Television’s Darryl Franks and Alexa Junge. Craig Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl”) directed the pilot.
“Showtime is known as the home of several shows featuring flawed main characters, and we welcome Tara—and all her alternate personalities—to the fold,” Robert Greenblatt, president of entertainment for Showtime, said in a statement. “What a pleasure to watch Diablo Cody and Toni Collette work together, a combination of inspired writing and acting that raises this show from just a curiosity to a compelling examination of a modern family.”
The series is co-produced by DreamWorks Television and Showtime Networks. Production is set to begin in Los Angeles this summer.
