(Newser) – Ellen Page is expanding her horizons: the Juno and Whip It star will write and produce Stitch N’ Bitch, a new comedy for HBO. Page is collaborating with Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillman, also known as the musician Har Mar Superstar. The comedy centers on two hipster girls who move from Brooklyn to LA to become artists, notes the Hollywood Reporter. It's not decided if the three actresses also will star in the show.
