Showtime's 'United States of Tara': first look

October 16, 2008 | 11:21 am

Here's your first look at Showtime's "United States of Tara," writer Diablo Cody's follow-up to "Juno."

In the series, based on an original idea of Steven Spielberg, Toni Collette stars as a wife and mother with multiple personalities -- both male and female. The actress said the pilot script was "so well written it's like a dream job."

And according to Peter Sciretta at /Film, the first episode of the series sounds promising. Here's how he lays it out:

In the opening it is revealed that Tara has just found morning-after pills in her 16-year-old daughter’s Kate’s bag. It’s later revealed that [potential spoiler warning] one of Tara’s alter egos, a burnout teenage stoner named T, was the one who supplied her with said pills.

"Tara" premieres in January.
