Michael Lewis’s Home Game Headed to ABC


And yet another Michael Lewis book will be headed to a screen of some sort: ABC has bought a comedy based on his 2009 essay collection about fatherhood. (Home Game itself was adapted from a series of Lewis’s Slate articles.) The adaptation will be written by Rob Sheridan; Lewis, presumably, is too busy churning out a script for Liar’s Poker and/or more long treatises on the German public’s fascination with poop. Since Home Game is based on Lewis's own life, a very important casting-related question: Who will play Tabitha Soren? [Deadline]
