HBO is exploring gender politics with "Women's Studies," a comedy project from former "Daily Show" and "Colbert Report" exec producer Ben Karlin and "NYPD Blue" alumna Theresa Rebeck.

"Studies" is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Tony winner Julie White and centers on a onetime famous author who, after a tumultuous period as a feminist "it" girl, is now a professor at a small liberal arts college in the Northeast.

Exciting! We have high hopes, especially since Colbert Report/ Daily Show generally seem to have feminist underpinnings.   From Hollywood Reporter, full article here.
