Ben Stiller has signed on to star in the HBO comedy pilot All Talk, which he will also direct and executive produce. From acclaimed novelist Jonathan Safran Foer (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), the pilot will also star Alan Alda.

All Talk is described as "politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually and sexually irreverent" and revolves around the daily and life-altering dramas of a Jewish family in Washington, DC.

Filming is tentatively scheduled to begin in the fall of 2012.
