HBO laughing with Manhattan moms

(Posted August 29, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

HBO has ordered a comedy series pilot from a producer of the cable channel's suffragette movie "Iron Jawed Angels."

The project follows a group of thirtysomething upper-class Manhattan women as they try to juggle motherhood with their careers, spouses and other responsibilities.

The protagonist is a married mother who is as self-assured on the job as she is insecure about being a parent to her preschooler son. She is surrounded by a variety of friends with and without children, including a stay-at-home gay dad.

It will shoot in the fall in New York. No talent is yet attached. HBO declined comment.

The project is from Lydia Dean Pilcher, an executive producer on "Iron Jawed Angels," which starred Hilary Swank and premiered on HBO in February, and screenwriter Becky Mode, who has written for various children's programs, including HBO's "A Little Curious."
