Actress Ellen Page is bringing a bit of Brooklyn to Hollywood.
Page is set to co-write and produce a new comedy series for HBO titled "Stitch N' Bitch," about a pair of hipster girls from Williamsburg who move to Los Angeles to make it in the arts, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The 22-year-old Page, currently starring in Drew Barrymore's roller derby comedy "Whip It," is executive-producing the series with actors Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillman, who also appear in "Whip It."
Page is best-known for her Oscar-nominated role as a wisecracking pregnant teen in 2007's "Juno." Shawkat played Maeby Fünke on the cult sitcom "Arrested Development." Tillman is also a Minnesota-bred musician better known as Har Mar Superstar.
It's still not clear whether Page will also act in the show.
