Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Jonathan Demme (Silence Of The Lambs) is going to direct two episodes of HBO's upcoming Mike White/Laura Dern comedy series titled, Enlightened.

Demme has also directed episodes of Columbo and Saturday Night Live.

Also, taking on directing duties are John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Phil Morrison (Junebug), Nicole Holofcener (Please Give) and Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt) .

Mike White created this show in which Dern plays "as a self-destructive woman who has a spiritual awakening and decides to live an enlightened life, which creates havoc at home and work."
