EXCLUSIVE: HBO has put in development Carthage, a drama series project from playwright-screenwriter Kate Robin (Six Feet Under), which she is executive producing with former HBO entertainment president-turned-producer Sue Naegle. Written by Robin, Carthage is an examination of small-town America and how the repercussions of a tragic event — the rape of a high-school girl — can spread past those directly involved, affecting the community and, ultimately, society as a whole. The project reunites Robin and Naegle who, as an HBO executive, developed and ordered to pilot Robin’s project Spring/Fall, which starred Tea Leoni and Hope Davis. Carthage also extends Robin’s relationship with HBO, where she worked on Six Feet Under for the drama series’ entire run. She currently serves as co-executive producer on Showtime’s newly picked-up drama series The Affair. Robin is with UTA.
