HBO just picked up a comedy from RMG client and veteran Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long with Molly Shannon attached to star. The untitled comedy would star the Saturday Night Live alumna as a nun who makes the difficult decision to leave the convent and confront life in the outside world. Shannon’s character became a nun after getting her heart broken at 18. Now she is an utterly innocent woman in her early 40s who has never had sex and has to discover the modern world in all of its tawdriness.
Prior to his tenured run with Simpsons, Long wrote for The Late Show with David Letterman and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Recently, Long has also been a stand-out contributor to the New York Times and The New Yorker. To read the full article that appeared on Deadline.com – click HERE.
