OMG! I think I just died.
As you all know, I love me some Mary Louise Parker. I know what you’re thinking? Mike you do? Yes. Yes, I do.
Weeds was one of my favorite shows of all time, and now… There’s word that Mary Louise Parker might be headed back to Showtime for a new series! Swoon!
Deadline reported the news and while Mary Louise Parker has not signed on, I’m going to hope this all happens. The series is going to be produced by Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly who started Masters of Sex which is also amazing.
The series is according to Deadline, “hourlong period project based on a the memoirs of poet/essayist Mary Karr who wrote The Lair’s Club, which chronicled, with some humor, her challenging childhood in East Texas in the 1960s. Her follow-up memoirs, Cherry and Lit, document her perilous journey into adulthood and her struggles with alcoholism. ”
It honestly sounds perfect for Ms. Mary Louise Parker. Sigh…
Okay, I’m hoping that this happens. Woo Hoo!
