Dunce Flash: Monday, August 2

Lizzy Caplan/Julie Klausner

I don’t care about your band, but Lizzy Caplan, I care about your show!

The network that brought us the glorious gems Eastbound and Down (I’m Kenny Fucking Powers!) and Summer Heights High is supposedly in talks to develop Julie Klausner‘s hilarious memoir I Don’t Care About Your Band: What I Learned From Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Faux Sensitive Hipsters, Felons and Other Guys I’ve Dated. Klausner’s manifesto of dating debacles will be translated onto the small screen as a show, in which the 20-something lead character will encounter a bevy of total losers. Again and again.

So, as if the Gary Sanchez Productions tag (founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay and the brains behind Funny or Die) weren’t enough to whet my appetite, Lizzy Caplan (Janis Ian!) will play the Klausner-esque vamp. Caplan, the adorably charming Casey of the canceled-all-too-soon delight Party Down, will be perfectly cast for the role, which will see her in bed with all sorts of loser letharios. Such win.
