HBO is reportedly putting the finishing touches on a pilot deal for “The Viagra Diaries,” a sitcom from Darren Star that would be toplined by Oscar winner Goldie Hawn, Deadline.com reports.

The story reports: “The project is looking for a director and eyes spring production start in New York. Based on the book by Barbara Rose Brooker, ‘Viagra Diaries’ centers on a woman (Hawn) who, after her husband has a ‘mid-life crisis’ at 65 and leaves her, struggles with being single for the first time in 35 years.”
