HBO has given a series order to the Kathryn Hahn-led “Mrs. Fletcher,” based on the bestselling novel by “The Leftovers” author Tom Perrotta.
Described as a “dual coming-of-age story,” “Mrs. Fletcher” stars Hahn as Eve Fletcher, a divorced woman who drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty nest, hoping to reinvent her life by taking on a new, sexy persona to experience new erotic possibilities.
“The Middle” alum Jackson White will play her son Brendan, “a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock and aspiring frat boy.”
“Happy Endings” star Casey Wilson will play her close friend Jane Rosen. “Bloodline’s” Owen Teague is Julian Spitzer, a high school classmate of Brendan’s, and trans actress Jen Richards will play Margo Fairchild, the instructor of Eve’s community college writing class.
Perrotta will write and executive produce.
Nicole Holofcener, who has worked on TV shows like “Parks and Recreation” and “Togetherness,” directed the pilot, and will executive produce 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.
