Zooey Deschanel Signs On To Play Groupie In HBO Pilot

    HBO announced yesterday that they’re developing a pilot (and potential series) based on legendary groupie Pamela Des Barres’ book, I’m with the Band, a lurid tale of boning the likes of Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger and every other musician who was famous in the ’70s. So who will play Des Barres? None other than sometime musician Zooey Deschanel, who is also set to executive produce the series should HBO green light a full series. I can’t imagine this won’t get picked up; it could be The Wire of boning ’70s rock dinosaurs. [Pitchfork]
