Love & Money Dept – TV Writing Deals for 10/12/12

For those of us who want the vicarious thrill of being in-demand:

  • Stacy Traub (GLEE) has a pilot deal with Fox for DIRTY BLONDES, starring Angela Kinsey and Rachael Harris (who we’re supposed to know for some reason, but how can they be stars if we have to google ’em to find out who they are?)
  • Abby Kohn &Mark Silverstein (THE VOW)) are adapting Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 387 Easy Steps by Kelly Williams Brown into a sitcom for Fox. (Um, no, we never heard of THE VOW either, but J.J. Abrams is producing that explains that.)
  • Jeremy Anderson & Patrick Moss (sorry, can’t find any credits for these guys anywhere) are writing a pilot for yet another soapy series based on Great Expectations at ABC. (Dickens? Pip? Again? Now you know why we aren’t knocking ourselves finding out molre about the writers. They’re gonna phone it in anyway.)
  • Lauren Bachelis (nope, no credits here either) is adapting her blog Hollywood Assistants into a sitcom, 20-NOTHINGS, for CBS. (Yay, beginning writers who leapfrog over me! Not.)
  • Uma Thurman is joining the cast of Lars Von Trier’s film, NYMPHOMANIAC. (No, she isn’t a writer. No, this isn’t even happening in television. But we’re so thrilled to find the name of somebody we recognize doing something show-bizzy somewhere that we just had to share. What? No, Lindsay Lohan’s latest fight with her mother absolutely does not count.)
