Gael Greene's Life Coming to a TV Near You
Gael Greene twittered that a TV pilot is in the works based on her memoir Insatiable: Tales from a Life of Delicious Excess.
Greene writes on her blog:
I always thought Insatiable could be "Sex and the City at the Table" or "It Takes Two to Fork Play." Serendipity Point, the Canadian film company that bought the option -- their “Eastern Promises” won both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, as well as a couple of Genies, Canda’s Oscar -- seem to agree. Serendipity leader Robert Lantos has emailed me: Sweeney is writing a pilot episode “for what we hope will be a long-running television series.”
The pilot is being written by actress/comedian Julia Sweeney of Saturday Night Live fame, Wikipedia also tells us that Sweeney "served as a consultant on Sex and the City for its last three seasons. She also consulted on season two of Desperate Housewives."
Greene suggests Uma play her, we suggest perhaps Helen Mirren? Either way, we're sure it'll be saucy.
