Showtime has picked up 12 episodes of The United States of Tara, to begin filming this summer. Penned by Oscar winner Diablo Cody ( Juno), the series centers on a wife and mother with a multiple personality disorder, to be played by Little Miss Sunshine's Toni Collette.

As previously reported, John Corbett will costar as Collette's husband. Steven Spielberg will produce.

Will Cody successfully segue into writing for television? Can she move from portraying teen angst to that of adults? Showtime, luckily, is giving us the chance to find out. - Anna Dimond
