Oprah Winfrey and Diablo Cody are teaming up for HBO.

The duo is developing an untitled comedy based on Dr. Julie Holland’s upcoming book, Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You’re Taking, the Sex You’re Not Having, The Sleep You’re Missing and What’s Really Making You Crazy. The book examines “the pros and cons of the drugs people are being offered as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies.”

Co-creator Cody will pen the script and executive produce alongside Winfrey and her Harpo Films company. Meanwhile, Holland will be credited as a co-executive producer.

This marks Harpo’s latest scripted project at HBO, joining family comedy These Things Happen, based on Richard Kramer’s (My So-Called Life) novel of the same name, in addition to last year’s still-untitled drama about the first black president at a prestigious liberal arts college.

There’s no current timetable for when the series will enter production, but it’s already among the more high-profile upcoming projects HBO has had on its slate in recent years, so it wouldn’t surprise me if we heard a lot more about this series sooner rather than later.
