Charlie Kaufman is Making a TV Show for Catherine Keener

HBO has been the place to go for great artists looking to try something new. From Martin Scorsese to Michael Mann to Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, we’ve seen a number of A-listers set up a show on the station. The latest is Charlie Kaufman, who will write and direct a show with Catherine Keener set to star.

This would be the duo’s fifth collaboration together. Keener appears in Kaufman’s directorial debut ‘Synecdoche, New York,’ and the Kaufman-scripted/Spike Jonze-directed films ‘Being John Malkovich’ and ‘Adaptation,’ and is scheduled to be in Kaufman’s next film ‘Frank or Francis.’

Deadline tells us the show will be about “an exploration of one day in a woman’s life and how the events leading up to it can affect, or not, the reality in which she lives.” They also suggest that the show is being fast-tracked to series, so it’s possible we could see this before 2013.

For Kaufman this would be a return to television. He got his start as a writer on ‘Get a Life’ and was one of the all-stars who contributed to the quickly-cancelled ‘The Dana Carvey Show’ before becoming one of the most respected screenwriters in the business.
