They've both got awesome names. They're both incredibly powerful women, and they both have interesting, pretty dysfunctional backstories. Is it any wonder, then, that Diablo Cody and Oprah Winfrey are poised to be Hollywood's next female dream team? (You had your moment, Sandra and Melissa.)

The Oscar-winning screenwriter and hysteria-inducing queen of the universe are set to join forces for an HBO comedy inspired by Dr. Julie Holland's upcoming book, Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, the Sex You're Not Having, the Sleep You're Missing, and What's Really Making You Crazy. In what sounds like typical Oprah fare, the book explores the impact of pharmaceutical meds and other wellness issues.
With Cody on board as a creator, writer, and executive producer, however, the Harpo Films project will no doubt have some juicy story lines, snappy dialogue, and (we're seriously hoping) an Ellen Page cameo. (The Hollywood Reporter)
