Kathryn Hahn to star in HBO pilot based on Tom Perrotta's Mrs. Fletcher

Deadline reports that HBO has given a pilot order to Mrs. Fletcher, a potential new comedy series based upon the novel from Tom Perrotta (The Leftovers) with Kathryn Hahn (BAD MOMS) attached to star.

Eve Fletcher (Hahn) is a divorced woman who drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty nest. Hoping to jump-start her love life, she adopts a sexy new persona and discovers that her world is full of unexpected—and sometimes complicated—erotic possibilities. The "dual coming-of-age story" will focus on both Fletcher and her son as they each explore their respective freedoms and the impact of internet porn and social media on our most intimate relationships. Nicole Holofcener (ENOUGH SAID) will direct from a script by Tom Perrotta. Kathryn Hahn will next be seen, or rather, heard, in HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION, as she voices Erika, the captain of a cruise ship who also happens to be the great granddaughter of famed monster hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

The synopsis for "Mrs. Fletcher" via Amazon:

Eve Fletcher is trying to figure out what comes next. A forty-six-year-old divorcee whose beloved only child has just left for college, Eve is struggling to adjust to her empty nest when one night her phone lights up with a text message. Sent from an anonymous number, the mysterious sender tells Eve, “U R my MILF!” Over the months that follow, that message comes to obsess Eve. While leading her all-too-placid life—serving as Executive Director of the local senior center by day and taking a community college course on Gender and Society at night—Eve can’t curtail her own interest in a porn website called MILFateria.com, which features the erotic exploits of ordinary, middle-aged women like herself. Before long, Eve’s online fixations begin to spill over into real life, revealing new romantic possibilities that threaten to upend her quiet suburban existence.

Meanwhile, miles away at the state college, Eve’s son Brendan—a jock and aspiring frat boy—discovers that his new campus isn’t nearly as welcoming to his hard-partying lifestyle as he had imagined. Only a few weeks into his freshman year, Brendan is floundering in a college environment that challenges his white-dude privilege and shames him for his outmoded, chauvinistic ideas of sex. As the New England autumn turns cold, both mother and son find themselves enmeshed in morally fraught situations that come to a head on one fateful November night.

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION will hit theaters on July 13, 2018.
