Oh, this hipsterville to hipsterville concept has potential be wicked awesome, or an ultimate fail. Ellen Page and two others are writing and executive producing a comedy that "follows two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists -- of any kind," reports the Hollywood Reporter.

The team behind the single-camera comedy, called "Stitch N' Bitch," also includes Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann. Shawkat played Maeby Fünke on Arrested Development and Tillmann you may know as Har Mar Superstar (tonight's rock pick) and Sean Na Na. The three recently worked together on Drew Barrymore's Derby Doll-inspired "Whit It," which opened last weekend.
