Demi Moore is heading back to the big screen, and it’s all thanks to her podcast: Dirty Diana.
According to Deadline, the erotic podcast—which Moore produces with screenwriter Shana Feste—is being turned into a drama series for Amazon, with Moore starring in the series as she does in the audio version.
The podcast, Dirty Diana, focuses on a businesswoman who runs an erotic website as a side hustle to her full-time job. While handling her X-rated second job, Diana is also saving her crumbling marriage and coping with anxiety.
The series is based on Feste’s own marriage, that she and her husband saved through better communication and therapy.
Speaking to BAZAAR U.S. in July, Feste admitted: “I wrote this from a very personal space when I had no sex in my life with my husband”.
“And that was one of the loneliest, hardest places that I’ve been in my entire life.” Her husband also became a producer on the podcast.
Currently, most other details on the series remains unknown. While the podcast has hosted guests such as Melanie Griffith, Lena Dunham, and Gwendoline Christie, there is no news as to whether they will appear in the Amazon adaptation.
However, it is known that Moore and Feste had considered bringing Dirty Diana to the screen for a while. “I think that we are deep into conversations about that right now,” Moore revealed.
And no matter what the future holds for their TV series, the pair hope to continue Diana’s story in the audio form as well.
“Part of where this story is going for us is in exploring the multigenerational aspects of this between the relationship with the mother and then with the daughter,” Moore said.
“We’re really hoping to go into those places where this will be able to open up … the relationship with sexuality as it is different for somebody in their 70s and 80s and somebody in their 50s to 20s and down into your teens.”
