HBO is delving into the new comedy project Women's Studies, from former The Daily Show and The Colbert Report exec producer Ben Karlin and NYPD Blue alum Theresa Rebeck.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Women's Studies is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Tony winner Julie White and centers on a onetime famous author who, after a tumultuous period as a feminist "it" girl, is now a professor at a small liberal arts college in the Northeast.

Karlin, Rebeck and White are co-writing the story, with Rebeck set to pen the script.
