HBO is set for Liza Palmer's Conversations With the Fat Girl, adapting to series the novel about Maggie, who deals with the fact that former fellow fat girl Olivia is now less copious and getting hitched to a jerk.

According to Variety, Conversations With the Fat Girl came to Rome executive producer Anne Thomopoulos and Anna Garduno when Garduno attended a panel on chick lit at the West Hollywood Books Fair moderated by Palmer.

Palmer won't be writing any episodes of the series herself, saying that she's comfortable as a novelist, though she is writing a pilot of her own.
