November 3 , 2014
Hollywood star Uma Thurman has been hired to play the role of a TV writer who dates the leading man of her show, media reports said.
She replaces Mary-Louise Parker, who pulled out citing health reasons, in her role in the American TV version of The Slap, the 2008 best-selling novel by Christos Tsiolkas.
The novel, which made it to the Booker longlist, has also been made into a mini-series in Australia.
