Girl Power! Thanks to Whip It, Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, and Sean Tillmann will be stitching and bitching on HBO.
Page, adorable Oscar nominee for Juno, is adding writer and producer to her resume. Page, Alia Shawkat (of Arrested Development fame), and Sean Tillmann will be executive producers and possible stars in a single-camera comedy called Stitch N Bitch. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stitch N Bitch will follow two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyns Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists.
Tillmanns other projects are music groups, where she goes by two stage aliases: Har Mar Superstar and Sean Na Na. Page is filming Inception with Leo DiCaprio, and Shawkat is just wrapped The Runaways and Amreeka, in which she stars.
