Darren Star‘s next TV project is an adaptation of a book — no surprise there, considering his work as creator of “Sex and the City” and executive producer of “GCB” and “Kitchen Confidential,” both of which were based on books.
What the new project doesn’t have in common with the others, though, is that a child will be at the center of it. Star will develop an adaptation of “The Honest Toddler,” a newly published book based on the website and Twitter feed of writer Bunmi Laditan, Deadline reports.
The Honest Toddler purports to be observations of life and the strange behavior of adults through the eyes of a 2-year-old. Sample tweets: “All this talk about flaunting your curves but strip naked in a public library and you’re the bad guy. The librarian clearly said ‘Make yourself comfortable.’ That’s what I get for following directions.”
Laditan will executive produce the show with Star, Clark Peterson and Dennis Erdman. It’s expected to be pitched to broadcast and cable networks.
