HBO Says Yes to Mike White

Enlightened, a comedy from slightly odd screenwriter/
actor/Amazing Race contestant Mike White, has been picked up by HBO for a ten-episode run. The show stars Laura Dern as a woman whose post-rehab decision to live an enlightened life doesn’t sit so well with her friends and family. Luke Wilson’s in this, too, making him one of the few actors to accomplish the commendable HBO show, Chris Rock movie, and nationwide phone company ad campaign triple play. [HR]
