molly shannon to star in a television show that actually sounds good!

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.

Long said:

“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.”

I LOVE her and I love almost everything HBO produces.  I think the concept for the show is perfect for Shannon and her brand of humor and acting.  Hi, Mary Katherine Gallagher.  Heck, I just think the premise in general sounds original and entertaining.  I can’t wait to see it!
