Kathryn Hahn has been cast to star in the pilot of HBO’s comedy “Mrs. Fletcher,” which is based on “The Leftovers” author Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same name. Perrotta is writing and executive producing the pilot.
Nicole Holofcener, who has worked on TV shows like “Parks and Recreation” and “Togetherness,” will direct.
“Mrs. Fletcher” follows a divorced woman, played by Hahn, who finds herself empty-nesting after dropping her child off at college. She hopes to rev up her love life by taking on a new, sexy persona to experience new erotic possibilities.
Hahn’s recent credits include “Transparent,” for which she was nominated for an Emmy, Netflix’s “I Love Dick,” and films “Captain Fantastic,” “Bad Moms” and “Flower.” She’s also in the upcoming Netflix movie “Private Life.”
Holofcener will also executive produce, along with Jessi Klein and Sarah Condon.
Perrotta is represented by WME and MMQ Lit; Hahn is represented by Gersh, Lighthouse Management & Media as well as Schreck Rose Dapello Adams Berlin and Dunham; and Holofcener is represented by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman.
