Salma Hayek is developing a new series for HBO Max, A Boob’s Life, which is about a woman named Leslie, who upon coming up on 40, has her life turned upside down when her boobs start talking to her.
The TV series is an adaptation of Leslie’s Lehr’s upcoming novel, A Boob’s Life: How America’s Obsession Shaped Me—and You, which is being released on March 2. Both Hayek and Lehr will serve as executive producers on the project.
“We are so appreciative that HBO Max was insightful and bold enough to develop this show with us,” Hayek said in a statement (via Deadline). “In A Boob’s Life, we use breasts as a metaphor for the constant judgment women are submitted to, creating a collective sensation that no matter what we do we are never enough. In this show, we give the breast a voice that takes us through the life of a woman from a unique perspective that often we don’t dare to see.”
