'Entourage' producers developing female-driven comedy for HBO. Is this the birth of the d--chette?
I’ve always felt “d–che” was an equal opportunity term, but let’s face it: Sadly, for the most part, it is not. So how exciting that we may be witnessing the birth of the d–chette, thanks to Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson’s new female-centric show for HBO. (Welcome to the 21st century!) According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Entourage producers are developing a series about a group of female friends “working and finding romance in Los Angeles.” Apparently, we are not to think of this as the female version of Entourage — since it is not as Hollywood-centric — but tomato, tomato, right? (Just realizing now that that saying doesn’t quite work in written form, does it?)
My guess is we’ll see plenty of boob jobs and Louboutins. But the key question is: Which actresses can sell d–chettebaggery as expertly as Adrian Grenier? (I’m thinking Taylor Momsen.) And anyone else surprised by how pretty Jeremy Piven looks as a woman?
