Michael Chabon & Ayelet Waldman Collaborate on HBO Show

Michael Chabon (pictured, via) and Ayelet Waldman will collaborate on an HBO drama called Hobgoblin.

Here’s more from Variety: “[It is] an offbeat drama project at HBO that revolves around a motley group of conmen and magicians who use their skills at deception to battle Hitler and his forces during WWII.”

The married couple will write the script and act as executive producers together. This endeavor marks the first time the two have worked together as professionals.

Chabon has written novels, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials. His 2000 novel, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, won the Pulitzer Prize.

Waldman worked as an attorney before committing to a full-time writing career. She has published mystery novels and general fiction books. Her 2006 novel, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits was recently adapted into a film entitled The Other Woman.
