EXCLUSIVE: Actress and author Jenny Mollen will be adapting her best-selling memoir memoir I Like You Just The Way I Am as a comedy series for ABC. Mollen (Crazy, Stupid, Love) is set to write and star in the project, from Sony TV and Jamie Tarses’ studio-based Fanfare Prods.
I Like You Just The Way I Am chronicles Mollen’s impulsive and outrageous life in Los Angeles with pals and fellow actor husband Jason Biggs. The book was optioned by Sony TV in July. Mollen is executive producing with Tarses (Happy Endings) and Karen Kehela-Sherwood (A Beautiful Mind).
Mollen, who most recently appeared on Season 3 of HBO’s Girls, is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Stone Meyer.
