‘LEFTOVERS’ Perrotta is Back to HBO with “MRS. FLETCHER” Series

MrsFletcher_BookI almost missed this one. Tom Perrotta, a novelist at first, must have liked the stint he had as an executive director on THE LEFTOVERS which, of course, was based on his novel of the same name. Now he has another series in the works. Here via an official press release is what we know about MRS. FLETCHER (also based on a Perrotta work).

MRS. FLETCHER – HBO Comedy Series Pick-Up

Logline:

Mrs. Fletcher is a dual coming-of-age story, exploring the impact of internet porn and social media on the lives of an empty nest mother and her college freshman son.

Pilot Credits:

Writer/Executive Producer: Tom Perrotta; Director/Executive Producer: Nicole Holofcener; Executive Producer: Jessi Klein; Executive Producer: Sarah Condon. Based on the New York Times bestselling novel Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta.

Casey Wilson as Jane Rosen, a married mother of academically gifted twins — she’s Eve’s close friend, a reliable source of emotional support and unsolicited advice. (Series Regular)
