Janeane in the Chips

11/30/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

Janeane Garofalo will star in HBO's first new series since its smash hit "The Sopranos," reports Variety. The cult comic, who has been something of a fixture on the pay-cable network -- besides playing a regular on HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show," she has starred in two of her own standup specials for HBO -- is negotiating for a $1.75 million paycheck for this new series. So far there is no concept for the show, and Garofalo's agents and managers are reportedly on the lookout for writers. At the moment, Garofalo, 35, can be seen on the big screen in "Dogma" and she can be heard as the voice of Sally on TV's "Felicity."
