One of the best personalities on HBO's "Hacks" is set to get her own show.

As reported by Variety, Megan Stalter is set to star in a new series titled "Church Girls" being developed by HBO Max and A24.

The half-hour comedy, set in suburban Ohio, will center on a closeted lesbian by name of Beth Parker, who is struggling with her sexuality and religion as she enters adulthood.

It's a part Stalter, who identifies as bisexual, was born to play, and she will no doubt bring the comedy chops she has been flexing as the character Kayla in "Hacks."

The series is reportedly inspired by Stalter's own experiences.

With another season of "Hacks" finished, Stalter will star in the dark comedy "Cora Bora" directed by Hannah Pearl Utt and written by Rhianon Jones. Her first leading role, Stalter will play a struggling musician who goes back home to Portlant to win her girlfriend back.

Stalter is also set to appear in the drama film "Sometimes I Think About Dying" directed by Rachel Lamber and written by Stefanie Abel Horowitz, Kevin Armento and Katy Wright-Mead.

"Church Girls" is a co-production between HBO Max and A24. Stalter serves as creator, and executive produces alongside Gabe Liedman; Mackenzie Roussos for Range Media Partners; and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Now, for your joy, please watch Stalter expertly skewer the corporate Pride Month celebrations that LGBTQ people are bombarded with each year.
