Almodovar's other films include Volver and Talk to Her
Spanish director Pedro Almodovar is working on a TV series based on his film Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, according to reports.
The film-maker is producing an English language pilot for the US Fox network, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Grey's Anatomy writer Mimi Schmir has been hired to pen the hour-long show.
The show will be "a suburban drama about a group of women who have known each other for a long time," she told the industry publication.
First released in 1988, Almodovar's original film starred Carmen Maura and Antonio Banderas.
Set over a two-day time frame, it told of a voice actress abandoned by her lover who becomes embroiled in a series of farcical situations.
Another of Almodovar's movies, All About My Mother, was adapted into a London stage play in 2007.
His latest work, Broken Embraces, had its premiere in Madrid in March and will be screened next month at the Cannes Film Festival.
