Showtime has greelit a new Steven Spielberg backed series written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody. ‘The United States of Tara,’ is a half-hour comedy about a wife and mother who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The show will focus on how the family (a husband and two children) deal with her various personalities.
Toni Collette has been cast as Tara, and John Corbett as the husband. Showtime has ordered 12 episodes of the new show, which starts shooting this summer. My favorite writer (/sarcasm) Diablo Cody has written three episodes, and will most likely pen half the season.
