Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Produce HBO Miniseries Portraying Female Friends in the National Guard

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. 

Television is more fertile ground for women right now, and that’s why television is so fucking good right now,” Louis-Dreyfus has said
