Mrs. Fletcher - Comedy Starring Kathryn Hahn Based on The Leftovers Author's Bestselling Novel Receives Pilot Order at HBO

HBO has given a pilot order to comedy Mrs. Fletcher, based on The Leftovers author Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name, with Kathryn Hahn attached to star, and Nicole Holofcener set to direct and executive produce. Perrotta, who co-created with Damon Lindelof the HBO series The Leftovers inspired by his book, wrote the Mrs. Fletcher adaptation and executive produces.

Mrs. Fletcher, which had been in the works at HBO for a while, is about an empty-nest mom (played by Hahn) and her college-student son who embrace their newfound freedom with mixed results.

Hahn’s Eve Fletcher is a divorced woman who drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty nest. Hoping to jump-start her love life, she adopts a sexy new persona and discovers that her world is full of unexpected—and sometimes complicated—erotic possibilities.

The comedy is a dual coming-of-age story, exploring the impact of internet porn and social media on our most intimate relationships.
