Ellen Barkin has signed on to star in a new HBO series! Find out more about Ellen Barkin’s upcoming show below with a video and photos after the jump.
Ellen Barkin, famous for her work in Sea of Love and Ocean’s Thirteen, is using her own life story as a stepping stone for her new HBO series that’s in the works. Barkin, who was involved in a very messy divorce from billionaire Ron Perelman in real life, will be staring and executive producing the half hour series.
The yet untitled project will follow the life of a fifty-year old woman whose world is turned upside down when she gets a divorce and has to reenter the singles scene. The upside of the story – she forms a tighter bond with her twenty-four year old son after the loss of her marriage.
“You have this character in her early 50s whose life explodes suddenly. Her nerve and life experience allows her to tell the world to go screw itself, and they love her for it,” stated pilot writer Shauna Cross.
Shauna Cross will be writing the script for Ellen Barkin’s new HBO series. A premiere date has yet to be announced.
