Author Sam Lipsyte will produce an HBO comedy series called People City.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lipsyte (pictured, via) will write for the show as well. Michael London will serve as the executive producer and Jocelyn Hays Simpson has signed up as a co-executive producer.

Here’s more from the article: “The offbeat comedy, People City, centers on a 25-year-old man hired by an eccentric New York couple to be their child’s caretaker.”

Throughout his career, Lipsyte published four novels and two anthologies. He won the Believer Book Award the 2004 and a New York Times Notable Book  in 2005 and 2010. (Photo Credit: Robert Reynolds)
