Los Angeles: Diablo Cody is headed to broadcast television with a top-secret comedy pilot.

The writer of the indie hit ‘Juno’ and Showtime`s ‘United States of Tara’ has sold the project to Fox. Apart from the title – ‘The Breadwinner’ -- details are under wraps.

Since becoming a breakout writer with 2007`s ‘Juno,’ for which she won an Oscar, Cody successfully launched ‘Tara’ on Showtime, didn`t do so well with the horror flick ‘Jennifer`s Body,’ and is re-teaming with ‘Juno’ director Jason Reitman on the dark comedy ‘Young Adult,’ which will star Charlize Theron and will go before cameras in October.
