According to Deadline, Ingrid Jungermann, whose first feature, Women Who Kill, just premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, is heading to television.

Showtime has put in development F To 7th, a half-hour comedy based on Jungermann’s popular web series of the same name.

The web series follows a middle-aged lesbian woman named Ingrid, as she attempts to navigate a world where her old-fashioned ideas of lesbianism have been left behind.

F To 7th – which she created and stars in – is 2 seasons long with each season lasting eight episodes. The series featured Amy Sedaris (Strangers With CandyBojack HorsemanUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer, Hello, My Name Is Doris, They Came Together) and Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American SummerThe Larry Sanders ShowThe Ben Stiller Show).

Although she starred in the web series, there has not been any confirmation as to whether or not Jungermann will star in the TV series.

Jungermann will be writing the TV adaptation of her series along with Showalter and writer/director Jamie Babbit (But I’m A CheerleaderMarriedGirls).

As with any web series making the jump to television, it will be interesting to see how similar the Showtime series will be to its web series counterpart.

This news also raises the question of who will play Jungermann’s character if she does not star in the television adaptation.

For anyone who has seen the web series it may be difficult to watch someone else take on the part that Jungermann has inhabited.
