First Look: Showtime’s THE UNITED STATES OF TARA

Toni Collette - The United States of Tara

On January 18th, Showtime will premiere its new original series, THE UNITED STATES OF TARA. From executive producer Steven Spielberg, starring Toni Collette, and written by Diablo Cody (writer of “Juno”), The United States of Tara is about a wife and mother who suffers from disassociative identity (formerly multiple personality) disorder.

The show will look at how Tara’s dysfunctional family, including her husband played by John Corbett, deal with her various personalities.

This is a show that I have really been looking forward to for a while. Toni Colette can morph into any character seamlessly, so it seems that this part was written for her. I cannot wait to see what she does with it.
