The adaptation is described as “the story of a fat young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body.” Bryant co-wrote the adaptation with West and Ali Rushfield, and Elizabeth Banks is credited as an executive producer. No word yet on whether the project means Bryant is leaving SNL after season 43; she’s been a cast member since the beginning of season 38 back in 2012.
