Brooklyn hipsters need more positive encouragement like I need a hole in the head. But I’m still thrilled my girl Ellen Page is writing a comedy for HBO about mankind’s most poser-ific social group. The “Juno” star, along with Alia Shawkat from “Arrested Development” and Sean Tillmann (aka musician Har Mar Superstar), will write and produce Stich N’ Bitch, a show about two hipster girls who move from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Silver Lake, Los Angeles in a passionate quest to be artistes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, any of the three actors might star in the show but no roles have been cast yet. Oh, pretty please, Ellen? I can’t imagine anyone else I want to watch suffer for their art.
By the way, for those of you who aren’t in the know, Stitch N’ Bitch is a series of knitting how-to books written by Debbie Stoller, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Bust, one of our favorite mags. Great name, ladies! [The Hollywood Reporter]
