Jill Soloway takes double duty

Multihyphenate signs up for HBO's 'America,' 'Band'

Former “United States of Tara” showrunner Jill Soloway is juggling two new gigs at HBO.

Soloway has signed on to serve as exec producer and showrunner on “I’m With the Band,” the half-hour comedy starring Zooey Deschanel and based on the Pamela Des Barres memoir “I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie.”

The busy Soloway has also signed on as an exec producer on HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” which is back for a second season early next year.

Soloway will exec produce “I’m With the Band” along with Deschanel, Tim Gibbons (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Seven Summits’ Sarah Jackson.

The half-hour centers on a group of friends caught up in the sexual awakening and cultural revolution of the late 1960s.

Soloway was the showrunner, exec producer and writer on “United States of Tara” last season.

She also served as a writer and co-exec produce of “Six Feet Under.”

Her other credits include “Dirty Sexy Money,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Tell Me You Love Me.”

Soloway first gained attention for creating the stage phenomenon “The Real Live Brady Bunch” with her sister.

She also launched the “Sit ‘n Spin” comedy evenings and wrote the book “Tiny Ladies in Shiny Pants.”
