Diablo Cody is looking to make her return to TV via ABC.
The “United States of Tara” creator, who won an Oscar for penning the screenplay to “Juno” in 2007, has gotten a script order with a penalty attached for a single-camera comedy. Written on spec by Cody, “Alex + Amy” is about a romance between an ambitious 22-year-old millennial male and a 32-year-old Gen X woman who move in together.
Script is from Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros Television. Cody will executive produce with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, with whom she teamed for “Tara,” and Mason Novick, who produces her movies.
“Tara” ran on Showtime for three seasons beginning in 2009.
