The premium cable network is developing Stephanie Danler’s best-selling book with Plan B.
Sweetbitter, the best-selling novel by Stephanie Danler, is headed to the small screen.
Following a multiple-network bidding war, Starz is developing the project as a potential half-hour drama series with Brad Pitt’s Plan B attached to produce.

Sweetbitter follows 22-year-old Tess who, shortly after arriving in New York, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant. Swiftly introduced to the world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, she learns to navigate the chaotically alluring, yet punishing life she has stumbled upon.

The book was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s “Rights Available” in May and is described as Kitchen Confidential meets Bridget Jones. It earned rave reviews and adoring profiles for waiter-turned-author Danler. The book is inspired by her life and tells the story of a young woman’s coming-of-age. It’s set against the rich and grimy backdrop of exclusive restaurants, conjuring a nonstop and high-adrenaline world evoking the possibility, beauty and fragility of being young and adrift.

Weatherman Brad Pitt made another appearance on The Jim Jefferies Show. Weather Brad is known for his grim reports on global warming, and this time he did his apocalyptic weather report in the field.

I’m on a boat!

On a boat in a canal in Venice, Italy, he said to Jefferies, “Yes, it’s a state of emergency here. It’s complete and utter chaos. The roads are gone. I repeat, the roads are gone. The rising water levels have consumed the streets. Behind me you’ll see terrified tourists evacuating the city to what I can only assume is a large ark of some kind.”

So, you’re doing the weather?

If you think it’s odd that A-List celebrity Brad Pitt is doing the weather on Comedy Central you’re not alone. Jim Jefferies explained on Conan that Pitt is a fan of Jim Jefferies‘s standup and actually asked him if he could be on the show. Jefferies said, “So we gave him this brown suit and he said, ‘Hey can I take that with me?’ And I said yeah, and now he carries the suit around with him in case he wants to do some field work weather reporting.”

PS. I just happened to be in Venice when this news came out. Unfortunately, I didn’t spot Brad. That would’ve been a slight miracle obviously, considering the huge amount of tourists.

Earlier this year, Brad Pitt spoke to to GQ in an extensive interview about his personal and professional life. In the interview, he talked about how Frank Ocean‘s music in particular was helping him through his divorce with Angelina Jolie. On Saturday night (July 22), Brad made a surprise appearance onstage with Frank as he performed a Stevie Wonder rendition of The Carpenters’ “Close to You” at FYF Fest in L.A.
Pitt’s gone through a highly publicized divorce with Angelina Jolie, and in the GQ interview he described the importance of Frank’s music at the time. “I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth,” he said. “He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one. And of great irony to me: Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear [Gaye’s touchstone album about divorce]. And that kind of sent me down a road.”
