Our favorite bad girl screenwriter, Diablo Cody is making news. She’s hard at work on a brand new pilot for TBS called Me Time With Diablo Cody. The edgy talent is usually doing her business behind the scenes, but this project puts her in front of the camera as a show host. Steve Agee will assist.
Agee is a writer, actor and comedian who appeared as Steve Myron on the Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program. He has written for Jimmy Kimmel Live! and also acted for 2 Broke Girls and The League. Deadline reports, he’ll next appear in Cody’s pilot as her co-host and all around sidekick.
What is Me Time With Diablo Cody? good question. Agee also will serve as a writer on the project, which is said to present Cody’s two cents on just about everything Hollywoodland. She’ll tackle celebrities, news and pop culture. If I know Cody, there’s more in store for audiences than this brief synopsis would seem to offer.
Cody (yes, we know that ain’t her real name) was behind the massively successful and rightfully cherished film, Juno. She also wrote and produced the wickedly funny Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron, and created, wrote and executive produced Showtime’s United States of Tara.
We won’t even mention Jennifer’s Body. Oops. I mentioned it…
51 Minds is producing Me Time With Diablo Cody, with Mark Cronin, Courtland Cox and Cody executive producing.
In other Steve Agee news, Beef is a web series he’ll soon be acting in, which is written by Michael Ian Black, who will also lead the cast. Joe Lo Truglio and Chris Meloni will also star. Agee enjoys a recurring role on an NBC’s Craig Robinson comedy pilot, too. There’s no word yet as to whether that one has a helathy possibility of being picked up to a full series order.
