HBO has given the series order to comedy series Mrs. Fletcher, starring Kathryn Hahn. Mrs. Fletcher is a dual coming-of-age story, exploring the impact of internet porn and social media on the lives of an empty nest mother and her college freshman son.
The series is based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name by Tom Perrotta, who is writing the series and executive produces with Nicole Holofcener (who also directs), Jessi Klein, and Sarah Condon.
Kathryn Hahn will play Eve Fletcher, a divorced woman who drops her only child off at college and returns home to a very empty nest, hoping to reinvent her life and find the happiness and sexual fulfillment that’s eluded her.
Jackson White is Brendan Fletcher, Eve’s son, a popular (though sometimes clueless) jock and aspiring frat boy who finds college a little more complicated than he expected.
Casey Wilson plays Jane Rosen, a married mother of academically gifted twins — she’s Eve’s close friend, a reliable source of emotional support and unsolicited advice.
Owen Teague portrays Julian Spitzer, a high school classmate of Brendan’s, a smart but underachieving skater who’s stuck in his hometown after graduation, trying to figure out what happens next.
And Jen Richards is Margo Fairchild, a transgender woman who teaches Eve’s community college writing course. Margo is confident and charismatic in the classroom, but sometimes anxious in social situations.
