Julia Louis-Dreyfus is working on another project with HBO, the home of her Emmy-award-winning series “Veep.”
Louis-Dreyfus is producing a miniseries based on Helen Thorpe’s non-fiction book “Soldier Girls: The Battles of Three Women at Home and at War” for the premium cable network. “Soldier Girls” follows three women who form intense, life-long friendships after serving the U.S. in the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars in the National Guard.
Nicole Riegel, a former soldier who has been featured on the Black List, will pen the adaptation. The miniseries will mark her TV-writing debut, though she has a number of big-screen projects in the works, including an untitled war drama at Fox.
Louis-Dreyfus will serve as executive producer on “Soldier Girls,” a role she also fulfills on “Veep.” The miniseries is currently in development.
