A new project from the creator of “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” will star Emmy winner Sarah Silverman. Deadline.com reports that the actress and comedian, who just picked up an Emmy for writing for her HBO special “We Are Miracles,” snagged the lead role in an untitled half-hour comedy pilot from Lucy Prebble.
The project “is described as a comic look at a pathologically honest woman having a modern mid-life crisis,” the story reports. “Prebble and Silverman executive produce with Ash Atalla, Amy Zvi and Dan Hine.”
Silverman’s early career got a boost from her work on HBO, on “Mr. Show With Bob and David” and “The Larry Sanders Show,” the report notes.
“She went on to headline her own comedy series on Comedy Central, which earned her an Emmy nomination for best comedy actress,” the story adds.
