» Ellen Page & Alia Shawkat to ‘Stitch ‘N’ Bitch’ for HBO

by Rohin Guha, published on October 8, 2009

I suppose not all of the day's TV developments have to be soul-suckingly awful. Take for instance the concert of kick-assery being conducted by Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat for HBO. Sure, the pay-cable net's got the East Coast hipster beat covered with Bored to Death. But maybe that's why in the joint Page-Shawkat venture Stitch 'n' Bitch, the leading characters uproot their serene Williamsburg lives and relocate to L.A.'s Silver Lake hipster enclave. Now all we need is a mushy drama set in Wicker Park and we'd be all set. Oh, waitaminnit ...

Sure it’s a mite shaky that they’re moving to the West Coast to pursue art, because y’know, NYC is assumed as this country’s art capital. And sure, further pontification on the struggles of artsy hipsters should technically make us claw our eyes out. But the promise of smart writing and a measure of self-deprecation with Page and Shawkat at the helm easily outweigh those concerns.

However, the pair are keeping their involvement with the series strictly creative—showing up in the series itself only sporadically. On the heels of Whip It’s meager box office mojo, it’s probably still a good thing that the pair’s charisma, wit, and generally excellent chemistry are being valued above box office receipts.
