Molly Shannon: Ex-Nun Comedy on HBO!

Molly Shannon is set to star in an HBO comedy about an ex-nun who discovers the world outside of a convent!

The 46-year-old funnywoman will play a nun who joined the sisterhood after having her heart broken as a teenager but leaves the convent a woman in her early 40s who knows nothing about the tawdriness of the world.

“It’s James Joyce meets Judd Apatow – a female 40-Year-Old Virgin with a huge dollop of Catholic weirdness thrown in,” writer/producer Tim Long told Deadline.

FYI: Molly is currently starring on Broadway in Promises, Promises through January 2!

    I enjoy Molly too and hope this is the right vehicle for her.

    HBO might be the right place for her to let it all hang out. This network is edgy and gives actors a real voice…unlike NBC which smothered her skills in that awful Kath and Kim.

    Looking forward to seeing this.
