HBO’s adaptation of The Corrections is one step closer to reality with the addition of one (and likely two) Academy Award winners: Dianne Wiest has agreed to star in the prospective series, while Chris Cooper is close to signing on as well, EW has confirmed. (Deadline first reported the news.)

Wiest — whose last TV gig was on the HBO drama In Treatment — and Cooper would play the troubled Midwestern parents of three adult children. The author of the acclaimed 2001 novel, Jonathan Franzen, is penning the script with Noah Baumbach, who would direct the pilot, while Scott Rudin is serving as executive producer. The network has yet to give the greenlight for a pilot — emphasis on yet.
