HBO, Darren Star, Goldie Hawn Team for 'Viagra Diaries'
HBO and Darren Star are back in business with The Viagra Diaries, a comedy project based on the book by Barbara Rose Brooker.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Sex and the City creator/executive producer is writing the script for the comedy project, which would star Goldie Hawn as a woman, who after her husband has a midlife crisis at 65 and leaves her, struggles with being single for the first time in 35 years.
Aaron Kaplan, Wendy, Peter and Alan Riche will executive produce alongside Star and Hawn. Should the project be picked up to series, the role would mark Hawn's first regular TV series gig since 1970.
Viagra Diaries marks Hawn’s first acting project since 2002’s The Banger Sisters.
Kaplan and Star also are collaborating on ABC’s Kristin Chenoweth/Leslie Bibb Texas-set drama Good Christian Belles, which will bow midseason.
Hawn and Star are repped by UTA.
