The United States of Tara is Diablo Cody‘s new TV show, launching this Sunday on Showtime – but if you’re imapatient, the premiere epsiode is already streaming from the series’ official site, though if you’re anything like me (in all respects but geographical location) you’ll also tune in on Sunday so that you can watch with live Twitter accompaniment from Ms. Cody herself. The show was apparently conceived by Steven Spielberg – which is what was said about What Lies Beneath, too if you remember. According to that film’s co-scriptwriter Clark Gregg in the Creative Screenwriting podcast, however, Spielberg’s contribution there amounted to “it’s about, you know, a couple they have a house and maybe it’s an old house and maybe there’s a ghost in the house and at first they think it’s the ghost of somebody from a long time ago and then maybe not” so who knows what he gave Cody to work with.
Out on the road to hype Tara, Cody has been talking about a couple of her other upcoming projects too: Jennifer’s Body and an acting turn on 90210. But what about them?
