The adorable Ellen Page, who was terrific in Hard Candy, twee in Juno, and unwatched in Whip It, is adding credits on the other side of the camera, agreeing to write and produce an HBO comedy about hipsters with two of her super-cool friends.
Page has teamed with HBO for “Stitch N’ Bitch,” a single-camera comedy she will write with two other young actors, Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann.
The trio will executive produce the project, which follows two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles’ Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists — of any kind.
Oh boy, I hope their trust funds are big enough to support their dreams! You girls be careful — I’d hate for your kaffiyeh scarf to get caught in the spokes of your fixed-gear bicycle on the way to Hotel Cafe for your band’s debut. What would they do without their lead ukulele player?!?
