Ben Stiller signs for HBO pilot on Jewish family living in Washington

| |

Ben Stiller has signed for the HBO pilot “All Talk”, which will focus on a Jewish family living in Washington D.C., an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.

The source also confirmed that “M*A*S*H” star Alan Alda is in talks to co-star with Stiller.

The pilot – whose tone has been described as “politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually and sexually irreverent” - is written by “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” author Jonathan Safran Foer.

In addition to starring in the pilot, Stiller is on board to direct and executive-produce. “The Dictator” producer Scott Rudin will also executive-produce, along with Foer and Eli Bush.
