Sloane Crosley Will Write Cake Pilot


At a Q&A at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, Sloane Crosley revealed that HBO, which last year optioned the social-butterfly-publicist-essayist's book, I Was Told There'd Be Cake, has hired her to write the pilot. How is she adjusting to screenwriting? "I'm still mastering Final Draft," she says, "and by 'mastering' I mean I just ordered it off Amazon."
