Lorne Michaels, Elizabeth Banks and Aidy Bryant are teaming up with Hulu to adapt Lindy West’s memoir “Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman” as a comedy series, an individual with knowledge of the production tells TheWrap.
The “SNL” star is set to lead the single-camera comedy, which is currently in development.
West’s — a comedian and blogger — book is about of a fat young woman who wants to change her life, but not her body.

Creators West, Bryant and Ali Rushfield penned the script for the comedy, which will be produced by Andrew Singer for Michaels’ Broadway Video banner (but will be produced outside of the “SNL” boss’ home at Universal Television). Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman will also executive produce via Brownstone Productions under their deal with Warner Bros. Television.
Banks first optioned the TV rights for “Shrill” back in December 2016.
