Molly Shannon to Star in HBO Show About Ex-Nun

Molly Shannon to Take Off the Habit For HBO Show

Mary Katherine Gallagher would be proud. HBO is developing a new comedy series for Molly Shannon, and she'll get to revisit the Catholic leanings of her famous Saturday Night Live character. In the as-yet-untitled show, Shannon will star as a nun who makes the decision to leave the convent and re-enter the world. It's rife for laughs: the ex-nun will have to acclimate herself while dealing with issues like being a virgin at 40. Seeing Molly Shannon on this week's Women of SNL Special reminded me of how much I missed her (her guest role on Glee was not enough), so I love this news. I just hope that Shannon doesn't get too nervous and put her hands in her armpits and . . . well, you know.

I am definitely a fan of Molly's acting and sense of humor, so I am excitingly awaiting the arrival of this new show. I am thankful this show will be on HBO as it will fare better with this plot outline and not be the censored cr*p often on the regular cable network(s).
