An Oscar-winning actress is working on an HBO series adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Olive Kitteridge," in which she would play the title character, a Maine town’s seventh-grade math teacher, reports Deadline.com.

Frances McDormand has optioned the book, which consists of 13 linked short stories about the title character and other residents of a coastal Maine town, before it won the Pulitzer in 2009, the article says.

The pilot script is being written by Jane Anderson, who also wrote and directed the Jessica Lange/Tom Wilkinson HBO drama "Normal," the story adds. "Olive Kitteridge" author Elizabeth Strout will be a consulting producer.

McDormand won an Oscar for “Fargo” in 1997.
