It's about time!
The Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long is creating a series for SNL alum Molly Shannon - and it's coming to HBO.
Shannon will play an ex-nun, who leaves the convent and is forced to confront the outside world. The character became a nun after a breakup at 18 and is still is virgin in her early 40s.
"It's James Joyce meets Judd Apatow — a female 40-Year-Old Virgin with a huge dollop of Catholic weirdness thrown in." It "will be outrageously funny — it's Molly Shannon, for crying out loud — but it'll also be a serious look at a woman who's 40 but emotionally still in her teens and who needs to get wise very quickly."
We love her! So glad to see Miz Shannon back on TV.
