Last Week’s Big Moments in TV Series Development Deals

by Larry Brody

Over the years, yours truly AKA LB, has spent more hours than I care to admit looking through the websites of the Big Three of insider showbiz news, AKA Variety.Com, The Hollywood Reporter.Com, and Deadline.Com searching for the latest updates about what the future holds for TV.

Want proof? Here’s  the breaking news they published last Friday, just the way they published it:

See everything thefutoncritic.com has to offer. Tell ’em TVWriter™ sent you.
