Following her directing of Sundance comedy “Obvious Child,” Gillian Robespierre has been tapped to helm an untitled divorce comedy for OddLot Entertainment.

Robespierre will also co-write the script with Elisabeth Holm, who will produce with OddLot’s Gigi Pritzker. The comedy is set in New York City and centers on three women.

“Obvious Child,” starring “Saturday Night Live” alumna Jenny Slate, was acquired at Sundance by A24.  Slate plays a Brooklyn comedian who gets dumped, fired and pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The film, which was Robespierre’s feature debut, was produced by Holm.

Robespierre is represented by UTA.
