More sign on to Sarah’s HBO pilot

Posted by Gator on February 27th, 2015

DavenportAndKenneyIt is being reported today that Jack Davenport, star of the TV musical series, Smash, has signed onto Sarah’s yet untitled HBO pilot, as the male lead.  Sarah’s role, Jude, has been called “a pathologically honest woman having a modern midlife crisis.” Davenport will play Blake, “a broken Brit and eventual boyfriend [of Jude] who gets caught up in his own virtual reality.”  Also in the pilot will reportedly be Kerri Kenney (of Reno 911!) as Melissa, “Jude’s older sister who is proudly holding the family together, with no idea her home is built on lies.”

Earlier this month, it was reported that the pilot will be directed by Charlie McDowell, who previously directed the romantic comedy, The One I Love. The initial announcement of the HBO plans, last December, touted Lucy Prebble, creator of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, as slated to write the show.

Sarah mourns death of Wittels

Posted by Gator on February 22nd, 2015

Sarah was among the first to react publicly to Thursday’s death of her friend and colleague, Harris Wittels, when she tweeted her sadness. This is a compilation of what she wrote honoring him:


He was my baby. I just keep thinking of superman flying backwards around the earth. I wish I could do that. I’m so mad at you Harris.

You should know that Harris was brilliant beyond compare. That his imagination was without limit. That he loved comedy more than anything.

That his heart was big and he FELT hard. That he was someone who would reach out to tell you he was thinking of you for no particular reason.

That he was honest even if it was gonna piss u off or make him look shitty.  He told the truth. Even when it was ugly.  Even when he lied.


Wittels was a writer (and occasional actor) on The Sarah Silverman Program. More recently, he was an actor, writer, and executive producer on Parks and Recreation. He was also a standup comedian, and author of the book, Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty.
