In May 2009 we heard that Charlie was considering a return to TV, and last September it was revealed that he had written a pilot for HBO. The project seems to be moving forward, because today brings news that Catherine Keener has jumped on board and HBO have "put it on fast-track development."
The untitled comedy is described as an exploration of one day in a woman's life and how the events leading up to it can affect, or not, the reality in which she lives. Kaufman is executive producing; Keener serves as producer. (Source)

What does this means for Frank or Francis?
Biiiiiiig thanks to Coren!
