Fox buys Diablo Cody pilot
Exclu: Diablo Cody is headed to broadcast.
The writer of the indie hit "Juno" and Showtime's "United States of Tara" has sold a comedy pilot to Fox.
The network has made a put-pilot deal (where a pilot will be shot and the network will incur penalty if it's not aired) for a Warner Bros.-produced project written by Cody.
The title is "The Breadwinner."
Beyond that, script details are being kept closely under wraps.
Cody will executive produce "The Breadwinner" along with Mason Novick.
Since becoming a breakout writer with 2007's "Juno," Cody has successfully launched "Tara" on Showtime, took a big swing with horror flick "Jennifer's Body" and is re-teaming with Jason Reitman on the dark comedy "Young Adult," which will star Charlize Theron and will go before cameras this October.
Fox and Warner Bros. had no comment.
