Splitting the Difference: The TV Series
Discussing my memoir as a TV series with Eva Longoria last spring seemed like a thing that happens to other people…to other writers.
Even when the option from Universal TV came through, I quietly shared the news with immediate family because yeah, options don’t always turn into shows.
Only when ABC signed on for the pilot and attached the writer Kat Coiro did I begin to whisper the news with cautious optimism.
But today, the studio officially announced the deal and included the cover of my book with headshots of Eva and Kat. As of today, a thing I’ve hoped and prayed for—a dark comedy about me, Laurie, Alberto, and Hilda—is actually happening.
