Looks like Diablo Cody is ready to give TV another try. The former Minnesotan, who won an Oscar for her "Juno" script, has sold a pilot script to ABC for a sitcom, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The script, entitled "Alex + Amy," is reportedly about a romance between a twentysomething Millennial guy and a thirtysomething Gen X woman. If the network is happy with the pilot, it may slot the show for Wednesday nights, which is already the home for "Modern Family."

Cody's last attempt at TV, Showtime's "The United States of Tara," only lasted two seasons.
