Granted, it’s been years since anyone had occasion to parody the off kilter snappy dialogue of indie pregnancy comedy ‘Juno,’ but Diablo Cody‘s influence has continued to be felt in films like ‘Young Adult’ and even the dearly departed TV series ‘United States of Tara.’ That influence will soon be front and center once more, now that the former stripper-turned writer has begun developing ‘Alex + Amy’ over at ABC, but what’s it all about?

Be ready home skillets, Diablo Cody is coming to TV once more, according to Entertainment Weekly. Following the unceremonious end of Showtime’s ‘The United States of Tara,’ Cody will move to primetime for development of her new ABC sitcom ‘Alex + Amy.’ Produced by Warner Bros. TV and Amblin Entertainment with a pilot commitment, the single-camera sitcom’s story follows “a romance between an ambitious 22-year-old Millennial guy and a 32-year-old Gen X woman who have just moved in together and are very much in love.”

Cody will executive produce alongside her manager, Mason Novick, and Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, who previously produced Emmy-winning Tony Collette drama ‘The United States of Tara’ for Showtime. Despite its acclaim, the under-rated ‘Tara’ was canceled after three seasons.

What say you? Do you think Diablo Cody’s witty brand of dialogue and drama could work on an ABC sitcom? Who do you hope to see join ‘Alex + Amy’?
