Here’s some detail on the show, called The United States of Tara, from the gang at TheFutonCritic.com:
Feature writer Diablo Cody (“Juno”) is developing a new comedy at the pay channel about an ordinary-seeming wife and mother of two teenage kids who also happens to suffer from dissociative identity disorder. The single-camera project is based on an idea by Steven Spielberg, however it’s not clear what role he’ll take in its development. Cody then will pen the pilot script and executive produce alongside DreamWorks Television’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. As for specifics, it’s understood the series will explore how a dysfunctional family, including Tara’s working-class husband, copes with her various personalities – including a lascivious teen girl and a macho adult man – which emerge when she’s under stress.
Diablo Cody is a Minnesota writer/blogger/former ad copywriter (just like me only female and from Minnesota) and she explored the seamy underbelly of the sex business in a book called Candy Girl.
She’s a pretty interesting person, huh? Dave is very interested and so am I. And, you know, I like exploring the seamy underbelly of things, too, so I get her.
