HBO has picked up a comedy pilot based upon Michael Lannan's feature script LORIMER, Deadlined has reported this evening. David Marshall Grant and Sarah Condon have signed on as executive producers, along with Lannan. Andrew Haigh will helm the untitled pilot.
Lannan also created a short film based upon the script, but HBO's version will go back to the script for the feature, not for the short.
LORIMER follows three friends in San Francisco who deal with the issues and options of modern gay life, while trying to get through their thirties. As of now, no cast is attached to the project.
This marks the second order for HBO today. As previously reported, the network picked up a comedy pilot from GIRLS writer Bruce Eric Kaplan, entitled PEOPLE IN NEW JERSEY. The project follows two siblings living just south of New York, who desperately attempt to get through life on a day-by-day basis. SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's Lorne Michaels will produce alongside acclaimed director Jason Reitman and Kaplan.
