Téa Leoni is One Funlady
March 1, 2006
http://www.variety.com/Touchstone Pictures and Beacon Pictures will team for Funlady, a fact-based comedy that has Téa Leoni (Fun with Dick and Jane) attached to star, reports Variety.
David Duchovny acquired the life rights of Linda Brewer, an Arkansas woman who raised her daughters by hosting passion parties and selling marital sex toys out of her car.
Duchovny, who makes his producing debut on the project, drafted wife Leoni.
Susan Brightbill will write the script, after writing Hergatory for Warner Bros. and Twice Upon a Time for Fox 2000.
Brewer dropped out of high school when she got married. When she found herself single and in need of a career, she attended a "passion party," the X-rated version of a Tupperware party, and became a pitchwoman for pleasure, thriving in the Bible belt.
