HBO Picks Up Molly Shannon’s Ex-Nun Comedy
Molly Shannon and former Simpsons writer/producer Tim Long just had a new show picked up by HBO:
The untitled comedy would star the Saturday Night Live alumna as a nun who makes the difficult decision to leave the convent and confront life in the outside world. Shannon’s character became a nun after getting her heart broken at 18. Now she is an utterly innocent woman in her early 40s who has never had sex and has to discover the modern world in all of its tawdriness.
