Sarah Silverman HBO Pilot

In the yet-to-be-titled comedy for HBO, Silverman will play a “pathologically honest woman having a modern mid-life crisis,” reported Deadline.  Prebble and Silverman are executive producing alongside Ash Atalla, Amy Zvi and Dan Hine.

As of yet, the comedy only has a pilot order, but a full series pickup is promising due to Silverman’s history with HBO. Silverman previously starred in the premiere network’s comedies Mr. Show With Bob And David and The Larry Sanders Show. The actress and comedy writer last teamed up with HBO for her stand-up special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles that aired in 2013. For We Are Miracles, Silverman won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. It was also nominated for Outstanding Variety Special.

Silverman’s other TV work includes her Comedy Central Show The Sarah Silverman Program that ran from 2007-2010. In recent years she’s made appearances on comedies The League and Louie, but has also done some more dramatic acting, including an arc on her boyfriend Michael Sheen‘s Showtime show Masters of Sex. 

Silverman currently has three movies in postproduction – Still Punching The Clown, I Smile Back and Ashby.
