HBO is developing a show created by Diablo Cody and produced by Oprah Winfrey, according to THR. The untitled comedy, which Cody is writing, is based on Julie Holland's as-yet-unreleased book Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sex You're Not Having, The Sleep You're Missing, and What's Really Making You Crazy, which THR says "explores the pros and cons of the drugs people are being offered as well as some surprising and highly effective natural therapies." A comedy about holistic medicine does not immediately capture the imagination, but remember that Mean Girls is an adaptation of Queen Bees and Wannabees.
