Emily Mortimer - Emily Mortimer's Sitcom Gets The Green Light

A semi-autobiographical sitcom created by British movie star Emily Mortimer has been picked up by Tv bosses.

The Shutter Island star has teamed up with her real-life best friend Dolly Wells to write Doll & Em, about a British actress who hires her childhood friend as her assistant while shooting a film in Hollywood.

The six-episode series has been picked up by Hbo executives in the U.S., and it will be broadcast in the U.K. on the Sky Living channel in February (14).

Mortimer's husband Alessandro Nivola, one of the show's producers, says, "All of us are very proud to have found the perfect home for Doll & Em at Hbo. They have been incredibly supportive and share our enthusiasm for the series."
