HBO Casts Hot Lady Leads in Washingtonienne
Bitsie Tulloch, Rachel Taylor, Amanda Walsh
, Amanda Walsh
star Bitsie Tulloch
have landed the leads in a new comedy pilot from Sex and the City
star Sarah Jessica Parker
The comedy is based on the semi-autobiographical book by Jessica Cutler about the "sexploits" of a low-level female congressional staffers, titled Washingtonienne
, says The Hollywood Reporter
The story revolves around the lives of three smart, sophisticated 28-year-old girls working on the Hill: Jackie (Taylor), an intern with ambition to be a speechwriter, April (Tulloch), who has worked on the Hill since graduation and Laura (Walsh), a workaholic Republican who is always defending her views to more liberal friends. (Three guesses as to who Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be rooting for!).
Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz wrote the script for Washingtonienne
and are executive producing with Parker, Sarah Condon and Stacy Taub.
No word on whether Ms. Parker will make a cameo as her own version of a Washingtonienne.
Given the recent political climate and the absence of shows like The West Wing
, will you be tuning in to Washingtonienne
