Touchstone Pictures and Beacon Pictures are teaming up for the sake of the upcoming film project "Funlady." In hand to produce the fact-based comedy is David Duchovny, while Susan Brightbill will write the script, and Tea Leoni has been attached to star in.
"Funlady" follows the life of Linda Brewer, an Arkansas woman who raised her daughters by hosting passion parties and selling marital sex toys out of her car. Brewer dropped out of high school when she got married. When she found herself single and in need of a career, she attended a "passion party," the X-rated version of a Tupperware party, and became a pitchwoman for pleasure, thriving in the Bible belt.
