Diablo Cody Sells Sitcom To ABC

Diablo Cody has sold Alex + Amy, a sitcom about a Gen X woman dating a millenial man, to ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s good to see Diablo Cody, part of Hollywood’s notorious "fempire" of young lady screenwriters, continuing her success. Diablo won an Oscar for her 2007 screenplay for Juno and her show The United States Of Tara, starring Toni Collette, ran on Showtime for three seasons.

She also penned the horror film Jennifer’s Body, which basically flopped, and Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron, which was better received. Additionally, Diablo is penning the screenplay for the Evil Dead remake, which is probably going to be a big old nerd shitshow.
