HBO is developing We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves as a miniseries with Marta Kauffmans Okay Goodnight production company. The network has ordered a script based on the novel of the same name by Karen Joy Fowler, with Natalie Portman attached to star and executive produce alongside Kauffman.
The story centers on college student Rosemary Cooke (Portman), whose twin sister actually a chimpanzee disappeared when she was five years old, with her older brother following not long after. Christopher Monger (of HBOs awards juggernaut Temple Grandin) will write the adaptation. Gideon Raff, co-creator of Showtimes Homeland, is also attached as an executive producer, as is Okay Goodnights Robbie Tollin. Hanna KS Canter will co-produce.
