The Oscar-nominated lesbian moms film
The Kids Are All Right – which starred Annette Bening,
Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo – is coming to cabler Home Box
Office (HBO) as a series.
According to Nikki Finke's
an hour-long weekly drama based on the film is being developed by the
premier cable network.
Lisa Cholodenko, who directed the movie
and, along with Stuart Blumberg, co-wrote the film based loosely on
her own experience, is on board to write the pilot.
“I'm told that it will continue the
adventures of the five main characters,” the site wrote.
In The Kids Are All Right, the
family dynamics of long-term lesbian couple Nic (played Annette
Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) is altered in unexpected ways when
their teenage children, Laser (Josh Hutcherson) and Joni (Mia
Wasikowska), seek out Paul (Mark Ruffalo, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Shutter Island), their biological father, whose
anonymously donated sperm was used to impregnate the women.
In addition to Cholodenko, the project
also includes the film's original producers.
